The analysis of rational component parameters for stress ribbon through steel arch footbridges

    Vilius Karieta Affiliation

Abstract

The article discusses the main component parameters and their interdependencies for a composite stress ribbon trough arch structure. The paper presents a methodology for balancing the combined suspension through arch steel bridge structure, suggests analytical methods for putting together the bearing components of the bridge and considers rational component parameters.
