Abstract

The purpose of this project was to design and analyze four pedestrian bridge design options for a 30-foot wide ravine in Fultonville, New York. A demonstration version of RISA-2D software and hand calculations were used to investigate all four bridge options. Each alternative was evaluated based on a weighted scale consisting of multiple criteria to best fit the constraints of this project. A timber Whipple Truss bridge was chosen to be recommended to the Board of Cemetery Commissioners and Trustees.
