Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
The project, developed by Multiconsult from the conceptual stage to construction, is the biggest hydropower project in Sørlandet in the last 20 years. The project is located in Sarvsjuvet outside Bykle (Norway).
In order to maintain and access the dam a curved top bridge was needed. Degree of freedom has been asked to collaborate with Multiconsult in the detailed design of this bridge.
The concrete bridge is curved (with a radius of 80 meters), around 142 meter long and with No12 equals span of 12 meters; the bridge deck is 6 meter wide and is simply supported (with bearings) on No 11 radial columns directly connected to the dam top beam.
Special attention and complex FEM analysis has been required in order to ensure that no problems will arise from differential movements between the dam (subject to temperature, water pressure, shrinkage, creep) and the bridge.
