|dc.description.abstract||This project consists in designing a suspension
bridge that will support reinjection pipes for the
water-bearing stratum in Las Pailas Geothermic
The objectives include the structural
elements designs, prominent among them:
cables, towers, foundations and block anchors.
To achieve this, it will be used the SAP2000
Structural Analysis Software to check the design
and improve it.
For a 150m length and the specific loads
applied to the structure, it’s required that the
towers be 15m tall, the steel channels required for
the pavement are W8x31 and the elements that
support the pipes are 10x10x0,65 cm steel
The foundations consist on a 4,2x4,2m
plaque with 30cm of bank, with a 2m depth, and
the backing is a double #6@17,50cm metal mesh.
The anchor blocks’ dimensions are 2,5x2,5x2,5m,
with a double #4@15cm metal mesh in the
perimeter, with an 1,65m depth cog.||es
