Flat arch

Function of a bridge structure of span 60.80 m that is formed by a flat arch and parabolic cable was verified on a model built in the scale 1:8. The flat arch assembled of precast segments and cast-in-place deck slab was tested for several positions of the live load. The failure mode and the ultimate capacity of the structure were finally determined.

In collaboration with the Department of Concrete and Masonry Structures, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Brno University of Technology.
