The Circular Arch Bridge is a pedestrian bridge consisting out of four different recycled materials: cast glass, ceramic, circument and geopolymer concrete. Due to an increasing amount of vibration problems in modern pedestrian bridges they should not only be designed for static loads, but dynamic loads have to be considered as well. There are...

This research investigates how to design a glass pedestrian bridge that is structurally optimised for multiple load scenario’s and feasible in terms of fabrication and construction. Linear glass elements such as panes have limited freedom of shape. On the other hand, cast glass can be produced into any shape possible. When glass is used in large...

The graduation project is a playground in and around the former Post Office of Skopje which is composed of three main elements. Firstly, the terrain of the complex is divided into four main fields, which vary from their immediate surroundings towards the city. Furthermore, the element of the bridge, which grows with its tentacles into these...

The Rotterdam municipality is constantly busy replacing old footbridges that have reached their lifetime. Lately, this is done using modern materials, such as fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP). FRP is a relatively light-weight material that has a high yield strength, which allows for aesthetically pleasing, very slender designs. Governing for such...

Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is a new construction material that often is used for pedestrian bridges. It offers a good strength-weight relation, a long-term durability and slender bridge shapes. Slenderness has effect on dynamic behaviour of the construction and vibrations are common for these bridges. Hand calculations are commonly used for...

The omnipresence of the aging mass-housing estates in Europe has created a new frontier for innovative approaches in architecture, particularly in the architecture of renovation. This new movement has the capacity to address two major aspects of contemporary architecture: the role of architects in catering for sustainable development (ecological...

Blankenspoor, Arthur (author)
This thesis focuses on the collaboration of two innovative materials - Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) and structural glass – in the design of a (hybrid) footbridge with a 30 meter span. The choice of subject is led by a rising popularity of these materials in bridge design and strengthened by positive recent developments in conceptual small...

Bridges are of one of the most important infrastructures in the<br/>Netherlands. Due to Dutch landscape bridges of every size and<br/>types are needed in the rural as well as in the urban environment<br/>and often more than one piece is needed for a specific location.<br/>Due to the significant cost of bridge maintenance engineer’s<br/>attention...

A new intervention has been placed in the suburbs of Bogotá. This new design aims to fight the monotony of large infrastructural arteries running through the city, whilst connecting two neighbourhoods and reclaiming space for the pedestrian. A network of pedestrian bridges connect the scattered brick towers and together with the adjacent park...

Reimert, Z. (author)
In structural design there is a tendency towards more slender and challenging architectural structures. Footbridges become more slender with an increasing high ratio live load to dead weight. A consequence of this increased slenderness of footbridges in an increased susceptibility to human-induced vibrations. The evaluation of the serviceability...

Conventional composite plastics that are widely used in the building industry, are becoming more and more criticized in regards with their unsustainable petrochemical resources and their increased embodied energy. Under the global environmental awareness of the recent years, new polymeric materials based on renewable natural resources have...

Tensegrity corresponds to a structural principle consisting of strut and tie elements forming a 3D ensemble. The amazing, impressive and unusual character of tensegrities leads to the wondering of structural and functional performance of tensegrity. This results in interest concerning possibilities of applying tensegrity as load carrying...
