Fourteen years after its last edition, Cable Supported Bridges: Concept and Design, Third Edition, has been significantly updated with new material and brand-new imagery. Since the appearance of the second edition, the focus on the dynamic response of cable-supported bridges has increased. This development is recognized with two new chapters, covering bridge aerodynamics and other emotional topics such as pedestrian-induced vibrations and bridge monitoring. This book concentrates on the synthesis of cable-supported bridges, suspension, and cable stayed, covering both design and construction aspects. The emphasis is on the conceptual design phase, where the bridge’s main features will be determined. The different structural forms are quantified based on comparative analyses with relatively simple mathematical expressions, and preliminary optimization is demonstrated. This provides a first estimate of the main load-carrying elements’ dimensions to give an initial input for mathematical computer models used in the detailed design phase.
Key features: Describes evolution and trends within the design and construction of cable supported bridgesDescribes the response of structures to dynamic actions that have attracted growing attention in recent years. Highlights features of the different structural components and their interaction in the entire structural system presents simple mathematical expressions to give a first estimate on dimensions of the load-carrying elements to be used in an initial computer inputThis comprehensive coverage of the design and construction of cable-supported bridges provides an invaluable, tried and tested resource for academics and engineers.
