Original Abstract

The paper is focused on the problems of the actual fatigue resistance of assembly joints of the temporary footbridge, which is newly developed in the author workplace. The necessity of the development of a new temporary footbridge has been invoked by the lack of such constructions in a practice, both in the case of flood situations, and also as the site facilities. Within this work the attention is paid to static and structural design, mainly to the harmonization of both aspects, to achieve the efficient design. In parallel, two types of the footbridge are developed, both ones with a lower deck, truss main girders and bracings. The first structure – short footbridge can reach up to 18 m span; the second structure – long footbridge reaches up to 36 m span. This paper deals with some problems of the short footbridge fatigue and presents the basic information on the actual behaviour of assembly joints of the structure in the case of fatigue loading actions. The paper is focused on the fatigue tests of assembly joints including elaboration and evaluation of their main results.
