Supervision of a diploma thesis – Messina Bridge between Calabria and Sicily

The diploma thesis includes multiple variants of a solution of the bridge. In the final variant chosen for a more detailed elaboration, the bridge has the suspension superstructure with the main span of 3300,0 m. The deck has a box cross section and is set up of precast UHPFRC segments. Because traffic is placed inside the box girder, it is well protected against the effects of unfavourable weather and also it has always the same shape from the points of view of the wind actions. The used material enables to achieve a long service life and to minimize maintenance needs. Inclined planes of the suspension system enable an achievement of a sufficient stability not only in the vertical, but also in the horizontal direction.
