Steel Pedestrian Bridge Behind Kocaeli Fair Area Implementation Project

The planned steel pedestrian bridge was built to connect the coastal park and car park area behind the International Fair Area. The bridge forms a crossing point for pedestrians and cyclists by the road between the marina and the east coast park.


The steel bridge is 54m long, 7.5m wide and 9.65m high. The bridge is designed for vehicles to pass in emergency situations.


The whole system is modeled in 3-D for the analysis of the steel bridge. Loads were affected as external loads on the structural elements. All calculations were made according to Turkish Standards Institute standards and regulations. In addition, required controls for ASIC-ASD89 regulation which conforms to Turkish standards and designs for yield stress were also carried out.
