Regnitzbridge, Bamberg

Project Description

Lightweight footbridge overcrossing the river Regnitz with an orthotropic steel deck, a cable net below, and an “RHD”-coating. Span 32 m, width 2,90 m to 3,50 m.

The bridge spanning between rigid abutments consists of a steel construction as an arch-frame-mainstructure with a cable-net below the cross-beams of the orthotropic deck shaped as a hyperboloid of rotation. The cable net was designed both to link the horizontal forces under dead load and to resist the torsional loads.
