Steel composite bridges

From 30 to 90 meter spans (and even more) composite steel bridges can be very competitive in front of conventional prestressed concrete bridges when fast erection is needed and when topographical constraints asks for solutions that are independent on the possibilities of scaffolding.
 
Our designers have strong experience in the design of composite steel box girders, I beam bridges or ladder bridges, both with simple and double composite action for highway or for railway use. From feasibility to detail design and including definition of shop-drawings and specifications for the steel shop you can trust us for all the process of design.
 
 

Incremental launching Advance cantilever

The incremental launching method (ILM) is a competitive technique for the construction of prestressed concrete bridges (and eventually also for steel composite bridges). At BEWS our engineers can help you in all the design stages of an ILM bridge, from the conceptual phases of design (requirements for alignment, spaces behind the abutments) to detail design and design of the launching equipment.
 
Prestressed concrete bridges built by the advance cantilever method are probably the most competitive bridges regarding cost in the span range 100-160m.
 
Our engineers in BEWS have participated in the detail design of an important number of PC advance cantilever bridges during the last few years. They can help you in all phases of design and they can definitely add value to your solutions.

Railway Bridges

Railway functionality demands make railway bridge design significantly different from road bridge design. Railway structures are more rigid vertically but specially horizontally to fulfill the requirements of rail-structure interaction, as defined in EN1990 or UIC 774-3R.
 
For more than 20 years, our engineers have designed railway bridges of all structural types and in all types of conditions. Let it be steel or composite, prestressed concrete, advance cantilever, incremental launching, precast,in-situ, conventional or singular in BEWS we can assist you in all phases of design, from the feasibility studies to detail design. Following all types of standards, from EN and BS to Arema.

Wind Engineering

Wind engineering was developed in the aftermath of the failure of Tacoma Narrows bridge on November 7, 1940 to analyse the effects of aeroelasticity on the behaviour of slender structures. Wind forces depends on the shape of the bodies but on the movements and their velocities and this can generate vibrations and oscillations that can be unstable (flutter, torsional divergence, galloping) or that can cause fatigue and comfort problems (vortex shedding vibrations, buffetting).
 
At BEWS our engineers are experts in wind engineering analysis. We can help you to control these phenomena when designing slender structures and we can guide you to plan your wind tunnel test or CFD studies and to interpret and analyse the outcomes of the results from an engineering design view point.
Singular structures
 
Let it be a bow-string, a modern net-arch bridge, a cable-stayed bridge or an extradosed bridge, we have participated during the last years in the design and construction of all these types of structures and we can collaborate with you at all stages of design and construction, from feasibility and planning or competition, to tender design, to detail design and technical assistance at the site. We have the knowledge. Let us help you
