Structural design, detail drawings and calculations

The foundation consists of four concrete slabs resting on sets of two driven prefabricated concrete piles. The span itself is a triangular three-dimensional steel lattice, of which the lower point is constructed using a round pipe, while the upper two staves consist of HE profiles cast into the concrete deck. Round pipes also run diagonally between these two staves. The total structure height of the bridge amounts to 1000mm.

The concrete deck is cast on a cold rolled steel plate (ComFlor 77). The edge of the deck is formed by the superstructure, to which a steel plate has been welded in order to create the permanent formwork. Beneath the roadway, a cylindrical tube of 500mm wide at a height of 400mm, serves as a crossing for small wildlife.
