Analysis and Design of Suspension Cable Bridge: A Review

Author : Nakul S. Nagose 1 RVRK Prasad 2

Date of Publication :24th January 2018

Abstract: A suspension bridge is a type of bridge where the deck is hung below the suspension cable in vertical suspenders. The main forces are tension in cable and compression in the towers. The cable is anchored at each end of the bridge to maintain tension in this cable. Single steel wires have a 2.54 mm thick can support over half a ton without breaking. The central sag of the cable is varies from 1/10 to 1/15 of the span. The main disadvantage of aerodynamic profile may be required to prevent the bridge deck vibrating under high wind. The suspension bridge is generally not used for heavy rail traffic where high concentrated live load occurs, which adds dangerous stress to the structure. In suspension cable bridge the types of load such as dead load, live load, wind load and design parameter are determined and analyzed by using software sap2000 for different condition. In the following paper same important papers are discussed below.
