EXPERIMENT 8

DYNAMICS OF BANDRA WORLI SEA LINK BRIGDE

DISCLAIMER: The Simulation covered in this experiment is based on the geometrical and material parameters of the Bandra- Worli Sea Link Bridge given in the wesite www.bandraworlisealink.com The FENITE ELEMENT MODEL is highly idealizised and not updated on the actual bridge.The structural dynamics aspects covered are thus ideelized and may not be representative of the actual bridge,where site condition matter a lot. Also,the term and condtion of General Disclaimer hold good.

DESCRIPTION OF BRIDGE:

 

See related video

 

Bridge consists of 2 continuous concrete box girder bridge sections for traffic in each direction. Each bridge section except at the cable - stayed portion is supported on piers spaced at 50 meters. Each section is meant for four lanes of traffic with concrete barriers and service side walks on one side. The bridge alignment is defined with vertical and horizontal curves. The Link Bridge layout is categorized into three different parts :-
  • Part 1 - The north end approach structure mainly with precast (PC) segmental construction
  • Part 2 - The Cable Stayed Bridge at Bandra channel is with 50m - 250m - 250m - 50m span arrangement and the Cable Stayed Bridge at Worli channel is with 50m - 50m - 150m - 50m - 50m span arrangement
  • Part 3 - The south end approach structure mainly with precast segmental construction
