TRIFT SUSPENSION BRIDGE

Trift Suspension Bridge - steel structure

GADMEN,  ALPS, SWITZERLAND

STRUCTURAL DESIGN: X-Statik
YEAR: 2009

This 170 m long rope suspension bridge offers safe access to Trifthütte, near the Susten Pass, Switzerland. The entire structure is under tension only, and besides the human load, it must withstand heavy wind. Due to the flexibility of AxisVM, the 3D finite element model of the bridge could be built and calculated successfully.
