Design of Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge

Design of Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge

The Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge, which includes novel structural systems, was recently constructed in Tokushima, Japan (Figure 1). There were a number of severe design constraints for the project. The bridge is located in a very environmentally sensitive area. The site is also in a seismic region and is frequently struck by typhoons. Furthermore, the bridge was to be founded on soft alluvium, and to be constructed to a tight budget. These exceptionally challenging constraints led engineers to adopt a novel combination of structural forms, including the ‘cable egret’ cable truss system, an improved form of the permanent tubular steel pile cofferdam foundation and a steel- concrete composite sandwich slab deck.
