Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is a case study on the Bridge in Cala Galdana on Menorca. The study contains information, structural drawings and images that focus on the stainless steel elements, describing the design criteria and method, the construction and the finished product after construction. The main structure of the bridge is duplex stainless steel (grade 1.4462) and comprises 2 parallel arches connecting to longitudinal and transverse beams that support a reinforced concrete deck. Stainless steel was chosen for its corrosion resistance and low maintenance.
