OVERVIEW

The Centennial Bridge in the city of Oradea, Romania was commissioned by Oradea City Hall to a joint venture formed of FreyRom SA & Procons SA and was designed by Integrated Road Solutions SRL in 2017-2018.

 

The bridge was built during 2018 and was opened to traffic on 1st of December 2018, to mark the 100 years since the country was united. The bridge is an arch having a span of approximately 80m and supports a two lanes carriageway and also 2 footways with a width of 3m each.

 

The webinar will highlight how Midas was used to the design of the new structure. It will also cover points including how construction sequence was considered, and some aspects regarding the seismic behavior.

KEY POINTS

Key Point 1: Construction sequence for bridge

Abutments, deck installation and the cables installation are constructed in a sequence, with the results taking into account accumulated dead loads. In this part we will see how the model was realised following the entire technological process of construction.

 

Key Point 2: Seismic Analysis

Initially the bridge statical scheme proposed in the feasibility study has been a restrained arch at both ends. However, during the design, it was observed that the fundamental period of the bridge was practically the same with corner period of the local area. Even if the area in which the bridge is constructed is one of the less dangerous in the country, having these two periods so close is not something desirable. In this part of the presentation we will see how the fundamental period of the bridge was changed and how the usage of dampers helped in achieving the desired result.

 

Key Point 3: Design reports

We will see here how Midas Civil can help you with the design of various elements of the structure.
