Original Abstract

In this paper there is some particular information about the development of a new sort of a temporary modular steel footbridge for pedestrians and cyclist, which was designed as a truss system with the deck below the supports and with the closed cross-section. Actually, this development was connected to the research project, which was one of the several ones from the recent period, where they all were focused on temporary steel footbridges design, developing and testing (including full-scale testing) and which were realized on our workplace in cooperation with research centres and companies. In this case the new footbridge has a span 18 - 36 m and it is divided into 3.0 m long assembly units. They were selected some its details for the loading tests and finally it was performed also a test of the prototype. Therefore, this paper brings the results of those experiments as well as some particular conclusions.
