[en] The new steel bridge “Hans-Wilsdorf” in Geneva is an exceptional steel structure that will drive general traffic through a main transportation axis. As the investment cost of the project is important, a structural fire analysis has been performed to study the sensitivity of the structure to a high temperature exposure, such as a truck in fire on the deck. This analysis will allow deciding whether a severe fire could be an unacceptable economical risk for the bridge.
