Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

149 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 2: Civil Structures Category 2: Civil Structures 2 Short description │New Troja Bridge over Vltava River The structure of the new Troja Bridge crosses the Vltava River in the northern part of the city centre. The bridge has two spans - the main span that crosses the river is 200.4 m in length and the side span is 40.4 m in length. The main span is crossed by a steel network arch, which is extremely flat (the rise/ span ratio is 1/10), and by a suspended tied concrete deck. The side span is a single span completely in situ cast prestressed concrete structure. The conclusive structural behaviour and construction process of the bridge is very complex and difficult. It was necessary to deploy many computational models for simulation and the prediction of structural behaviour. The results from mathematical simulations were continuously compared with the results of measurements and computational models were continuously updated. Novak & Partner, Ltd.
