Salazar, Guillermo F.
This project explored alternative structural solutions for a pedestrian bridge to connect the field atop of the new Parking Garage to the alleyway behind Harrington Auditorium at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Campus. Four basic bridge types, each consisting of steel or concrete, were initially considered. Two alternatives, a steel truss bridge and a steel arch bridge, were designed in detail. A Building Information Model was generated to visualize the two alternatives. The supporting bridge structure using cast-in-place reinforced concrete for both cases was also designed.
