A steel skywalk structure is analyzed and designedusing conventional and finite element approach. Analysis based onstiffness method has been carried out using analysis and design software‘STAAD.Pro-05’ and the results so obtained are verified by manualcalculations. The skywalk design is as per the clauses and normsspecified by ‘IS 800-1982’. Finite element model of the same is formulatedand analyzed using ‘ANSYS-10’ and the results are compared withstiffness analysis and experimental testing. A prototype of skywalkstructure is prepared to a scale of 1:10 using mild steel. The experimentalmodel is tested under static loads and simulated wind loads forvarious load combinations. Free vibration analysis of the model iscarried out to determine its natural frequency and other importantparameters influencing its behavior under dynamic loads.
