Dynamic assessment of the Iron Bridge
Pedestrian bridges often encounter the challenge of designing lightweight structures that effectively utilize materials. This is particularly true for older bridges that are lightly damped and lightweight, hold symbolic and historical significance, and were originally designed without considering their dynamic behavior or meeting current serviceability limit state standards.
A notable example of such a bridge is the Iron Bridge in Uppsala, which has been in existence since its inauguration in 1848. Over time, the original design has been modified to adhere to modern standards and requirements.
In this webinar, we will focus on a case study that examines the material and dynamic properties of the system, along with an evaluation of a relevant loading scenario. We will explore various modeling aspects and their impact on the structural system.
Why should you be part of this webinar?
Are you frequently confronted with the dilemma of constructing a reliable finite element model based on uncertain factors such as geometry, material, and boundary conditions? If so, this webinar is tailored to your needs. Join us to enhance your proficiency in FEM-Design and achieve a robust finite element model.
- The case study of the Iron Bridge in Uppsala.
- Problem formulation when dealing with existing structures and limited documentation.
- Conducting sensitivity analysis of boundary conditions and material properties.
- Dynamic analysis with direct time-integration methods in FEM-Design.

- Interactive Q&A session.
Bridges not only facilitate transportation but also contribute to the overall value of cities and their inhabitants. In the present era, engineers and architects face the task of redefining the concept of bridging physical barriers. This presents both challenges and opportunities for creating sustainable and economically optimized bridges in urban areas. FEM-Design provides the necessary capabilities, offering state-of-the-art static and dynamic finite element analysis, coupled with integrated structural design and API features.
