Alamillo Bridge, Seville, Spain | Suspended Structures
In my previous article, we discussed the development of Suspended Structures and the technical aspects involved in the construction of Suspended Structures.
Alamillo Bridge, Seville, Spain, 1987-1992, designed by Calatrava Santiago, total span of the bridge is 200mm and height of the tower is 142m. Materials used are steel for tower with concrete infill where needed, steel bridge deck structure and concrete abutments. The extraordinary weight of the concrete filled steel mast, which angles away from the roadbed at 58 degrees is enough to support the deck without the need for counter-stay cables or support piers.
