Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

123 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 2: Civil Structures Category 2: Civil Structures 2 Short description │Barrier Free Pedestrian Connection The City Mannheim lies on the junction of the river Neckar by the river Rhine and contains a lot of traffic- and pedestrian bridges. After the reconstruction of the Friedrich-Ebert Bridge across the river Neckar in 2007, the Mannheim City Government decided to improve the traffic situation and build a barrier free connection from Neckar Bank Way to the bridge. The connection, implemented in 2011, is about 70 m long and 2.5 m wide and it lies about 6.0% in grade. The structure consists of the solid beam based on the slim steel columns with supporting walls at the entry and deep injection piles foundation. The very bad soil conditions were responsible for the deep piles foundation by the old bridge structure too. The new structure was built up as a 3D model in Scia Engineer, including the supporting walls and foundation with deep injection piles. Calculation of the structure was processed according to Theory IId Order. The required dynamic calculations due to Earthquake Zone I were considered too. The building costs of the structure are about 600,000 euros.
