Descripción
The Arganzuela Footbridge is a helico-conical spatial truss with two bodies spanning 117 m and 96 m over the Manzanares River and the Arganzuela Park in Madrid, Spain. The main structure of both bodies may be described as a conical spatial steel truss, of circular section, with curved diagonals and straight longitudinal chords, all of them inscribed in a tronco-conical surface. The diagonals run along four helixes which may be grouped into two families of contrary direction. This configuration determines the structure of the footbridges which, although it has an adequate overall depth in relation to the span and, being a truss, a favorable typology for a longitudinal structure, it loses part of this favorable disposition due to the curving of the diagonals, which introduce undesired bending stresses in the diagonals. In addition to the unusual shape and dimensions, the foundation is very complex and is greatly conditioned by the existence of underground motorway tunnels and sewers.
