Grimsel Pass Bridge
Wind dynamic analyses for a cable-stayed bridge in an alpine environment were performed by Galmarini & Partner in conjunction with ABES using ABES crossWind.
Several cross-section constellations were investigated including cross-sections under severe snow loading. ABES crossWind was used to optimise the final cross-section and to resolve various wind-induced issues.
Wind tunnel test could be minimised as a result and costs could be reduced.
