Footbridge over the river Oria

The elevation of the bridge follows the moments envelope for the continuous beam of 2 spans of 26.4 and 1.1 m, while the tensile fiber draws a winding line (bottom fiber over the river Oria / top fiber on the right bank). The reinforced concrete deck is at all times in the compressed fiber (top fiber over the river / bottom fiber on the right bank), with the obvious structural advantage.

The web is folded in the area corresponding to negative moments, creating a warped surface that enters the inside of the footbridge.
