Eadon Consulting carried out the structural design calculations for a 17m spanning, 2m wide footbridge on behalf of Wray Fabrications Ltd. The bridge is made from a pair of parallel universal beam girders supporting a deck of timber cross beams.
The structural steel beam and connection design was carried out in accordance with Eurocode 3 (BS EN 1993-2 - Design of steel structures – Steel bridges), and the loading was assessed using Eurocode 1 (BS 1991-2 Actions on structures – Traffic loads on bridges, and BS EN 1991-1-4 Action on structures – Wind actions.
