Testing of the steel frame

The steel frame, where the bridges legs will be fixed to, was tested with an actual arc bridge model with the competition load (horizontal reaction at each leg was approximately 4 kN) and we can assure that displacement in x direction is less than 2 mm (see "Rules and regulations" 3.3).

Read more...

Measuring deflections during the vertical loading

Deflection is measured in two locations: at mid-span and a random location between 800 mm to 1700 mm from midpoint of the span. Extra steel bars (without any loading) are going to be placed at both locations and vertical deflection is going to be measured using digital devices at the centre of those bars.

Note!

In order to avoid any misunderstandings, please note that the bridge’s legs will not be fixed during the timed construction. The bridge will be fixed to a special steel frame only for the horizontal and vertical load tests.
