The World of Footbridges: From the Utilitarian to the Spectacular

The World of Footbridges: From the Utilitarian to the Spectacular Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Structural engineers are often more interested in spectacular road and rail bridges with enormous spans than in relatively narrow footbridges built for modest loads. Local authorities, on the other hand, see pedestrian and cycle bridges in inner-city or rural locations as vital connections and important features of the town or landscape. Designs are often selected on the basis of architectural competitions. As there are no official guidelines for the planning of footbridges are an important source of information and inspiration for structural engineers, architect and city or rural planners.

This book contains 85 examples of footbridges built worldwide over past three decades and includes open pedestrian and cycle bridges, utility bridges and skywalks in many different environments. The collection is arranged according to load bearing system and span length. There is a brief description of the location and structural system of each bridge illustrated by photographs, plans, elevations and in some cases construction details. It is a treasure trove for bridge builders.

Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Idelberger is a structural engineer and the author of numerous technical descriptions of internationally acclaimed structure. His bridge collection is the result of his own research at locations all over the world and the first-hand technical information he received from the engineers, building contractors and building authorities involved.
