Model Parameters

Model

The plant, which manufactures railroad ties, required access over the Fanggraben River to the rail siding warehouse. The new railroad bridge spans the Fanggraben River at an incline angle of 63 gradians (56.7°).

Due to the limited distance between the top of rail to the top of the water height, the bridge’s supporting structure required minimal depth. A steel half-through bridge design constructed with a thick sheet metal deck without supporting transverse beams was selected.

The bridge dimensions include a 42-foot length, 37-foot span, and 16-foot clear width. The engineering office of Schröder + Raue from Zwickau utilized the RFEM finite element program to analyze and design the structure.
