All students taking Structures courses visited the Instituto Eduardo Torroja, where they were shown not only the emblematic buildings and pavilions, but also the premises where materials and structural elements are tested. Being the IET close to the Nudo de la Paloma footbridge, one of its authors, José Luís Bellod, an engineer working at CESMA, gave them a lecture on its structure. The afternoon was devoted to visiting and analysing three new footbridges in Madrid Rio: las pasarelas Gemelas, el Puente de Arganzuela y la pasarela del Principado de Andorra.

The models were presented, explained and tested, loading them and taking them to structural failure in order to analyze their behaviour.
