Abstract:Construction of Constitución de 1812 cable-stayed Bridge over the Cadiz Bay has needed the combination of efforts and determinations of many working teams. Among them, APIA XXI was commissioned by the Ministry of Public Work to develop the Proof Check Consultancy for the more relevant phases of the erection procedure of the bridge. In this article the main tasks carried out inside this field are described. In addition, a specific case of study related to the geometric control of the bridge during the cable staying phases is explained. Finally, an analysis to evaluate the sensitivity to fracture of the retainer bars of the Lifting Frame is presented.
