Deformation Analysis for a Railway Bridge Span

Quick Facts

Facility: Railway Bridge

Bridge Span: 30 meters

Duration: 1 month

Services Provided: Laser Scanning, Structural Modeling, Finite Element Analysis

Software Solutions: Autodesk ReCap Pro, SOFiSTiK

Final Deliverables: Finite Element Analysis, Expert Conclusion


Having been improperly fabricated, a railway bridge span was to be installed onto the existing infrastructure facility in the run of a reconstruction process. To assure the deformed structure safety regulations compliance, FARO Focus 3D X 130 was deployed to perform laser scanning of the span. The 3D Structural model created basing on the point cloud data has significantly improved performance in revealing discrepancies between as-designed and as-built spans. Finite Element Analysis (FEA), in its turn, contributed to the timely and accurate assessment of the span’s Euro Norms regulations compliance.

The Bridge is an ambition to organically blend a space frame structure into pedestrian infrastructure. The core idea of the Project has been to design a lightweight bridge that generates a carbon-negative construction footprint. Destined to become a notable public space, the concept of the footbridge includes the promotion of green construction and LEED principles. Custom modifications done in Dynamo facilitated the Autodesk Revit 2019 design process making the bridge perfectly fit into urban architecture. Structurally, the pedestrian bridge design is uncomplicated but rigid and sustainable which has been proved during computational analysis. Finite Element Analysis, aerodynamics cross-flow velocity, and cross-flow pressure demonstrated the design viability.
