A pedestrian bridge is also known as footbridge, a bridge designed for pedestrians including cyclists, animal traffic and horse riders but not accessible for vehicles. Pedestrian bridges complement the landscape and can be used to link two distinct areas or to signal a transaction.
In many developed countries, pedestrian bridges are both functional and can be decoratively works of art and sculpture. It also functions in a community as access to medical clinics, schools and markets or crossing rivers.
Simple suspension bridge designs have been created to be sustainable and easily constructable in many areas using only local materials and labor.
There are different types of design pedestrian bridges such as Timber, Steel and Concrete footbridges. An enclosed pedestrian bridge between two buildings is called a skyway. Bridges develop to provide for both pedestrians and cyclists are known as greenbridges.
SMC always uses high-quality structure steel that is readily available worldwide in certified grades, in products of various shapes and sizes. Prefabrication of steel work in controlled factory conditions leads to high quality work at minimum cost. The excellent quality control is achieved through a thorough testing regimine at the steel mills and during the fabrication processes of cutting and drilling, assembly, welding, and protective treatment. The quality assurance that is attained should give confidence to all clients and engineers who specify steel for their bridge project.
Steel material is supplied in two product forms – ‘flat products’ (steel plate and strip) and ‘long products’ (rolled sections, either standard open sections such as beams, channels, angles, etc or hollow sections). For structural use in bridges these products are inevitably cut (to size and shape) and welded, one component to another. In the structure, the material is subject to tensile and compressive forces. Structural steel generally responds in a linear elastic manner, up to the ‘yield point’ and thereafter has a significant capacity for plastic straining before failure. All these aspects of steel material are utilised by the designer of a steel bridge.
SMC is professional manufacturer and engineering company for space frame and steel structure project with full capability of research, design, fabrication, construction, supervision service for overseas project.
Our design team is comprised of professional design engineers with master’s or bachelor degrees. Using software SFCAD, 3D3S, PKPM, PS2000, AUTOCAD, they are able to ensure the quality of the designs of our structures. We also have already established strategic relationships with many universities, construction design institutes, etc. which enable the company to have high capability of designing and consulting in the professional field. We are exceptional at designing in accordance to design codes of ASTM, BS, DIN, JIS, and GB to satisfy different customers’ requirements.
Space frame structures are strong because of the inherent rigidity of the triangle flexing loads (bending moments) are transmitted as tension and compression loads along the length of each strut. Space frame structures are suitable to be used span large areas with few interior supports such as stadium, coal storage, cement storage, etc. We have now completed more than 200 overseas projects which quality is satisfied with all customers.
