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, the building techniques and performance of existing bridges are an important source of information and inspiration for structural engineers, architects and city or rural planners.
This book contains 85 examples of footbridges built worldwide over the 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.

About the Author:

Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Idelberger is a structural engineer and the author of numerous technical descriptions of internationally acclaimed structures. 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.

Review:

"The text is clear and well translated throughout, and not withouta sense of humour, as when the author notes how the decking on asuspension footbridge near Lavertezzo, Switzerland, was sized tosuit the private owner's dog." (The Happy Pontist, 12 May 2011)

Book Description Ernst W. & Sohn Verlag Apr 2011, 2011. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Bauingenieure mögen Fußwegbrücken geringer Breite und Traglasten weniger beachten als Straßen- und Eisenbahnbrücken von spektakulärer Spannweite und Konstruktion. Die kommunalen Behörden hingegen erachten innerstädtische oder die umgebende Landschaftlich erschließende Brücken für Fußgänger und Radler für weitaus entscheidender, nicht selten für prägend, und veranlassen in der Regel Entwurfswettbewerbe. Da es keine einheitlichen Entwurfsrichtlinien gibt, bilden die Erfahrungen aus realisierten Brücken eine wichtige Informations- und Inspirationsquelle für Bauingenieure, Architekten, Stadt- und Landschaftsplaner. 183 pp. Englisch.
