A Review and Analysis of Suspension Bridge Structures

Firoz Abbasi | Sumeet Pahwa


Abstract: The requirement of long span bridge is increase with development of infrastructure facility in every nation. Long span bridge could be achieved with use of high strength materials and innovative techniques for analysis of bridge. Generally, cable supported bridges comprise both suspension and cable-stayed bridge. Cable supported bridges are very flexible in behavior. These flexible systems are susceptible to the dynamic effects of wind and earthquake loads. The cable-stayed bridge could provide more rigidity due to presence of tensed cable stays as a force resistance element. The suspension bridge could assigned more span in the field of bridge. So, combination of above two structural system the innovative form of cable-stayed suspension hybrid bridge could be the better option to provide more span. Here, attempt is made to analyze long span cable-stayed suspension hybrid bridge.
