Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL AND MODELING
Description Main aim of this propose is a new design methodology, which evaluates the optimum configuration of network arch bridge schemes.
A three-step optimization algorithm is implemented in a FE model, with the purpose to evaluate the bridge optimum configuration, involving the lowest material quantity and the best strength performance level in all structural members of the bridge. The stability and the efficiency of the formulation will be verified with respect to several bridge configurations ranging from small to large spans.
Moreover, parametric results will be investigate dealing with the interaction between cable-system, girder and arch, giving rise to specific analyses useful for design purposes
