Santuario del Carmen Footbridge on the river Cidacos

The bridge is made of 3 spans of 2, 36 and 2 m each. The end spans are used to provide two separate elastic fixed-endings, making it thus an elastically fixed-ended beam. The fixed-endings are made of vertical tensional members anchored to the abutment.

The elevation of the beams corresponds to the tension diagram of live load.
