Cable-Stayed Ljubljanica River Bridge, Slovenia
Abstract:Crossing the narrow Ljubljanica River east of the capital Ljubljana was a part of the highway programme in Slovenia. The original conceptual design called for a series of single-span girders with several supports in the river. Several experts were consulted, and a cable-stayed solution with three parallel pylons 24 m high above the deck was finally selected as the most appropriate solution. The cable-stayed solution was chosen because it best satisfied various functional and ecological requirements. It was also seen as creating an attractive symbol for the nearby city.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
