Fourteen years on from its last edition, Cable SupportedBridges: Concept and Design, Third Edition , has beensignificantly updated with new material and brand new imagerythroughout. Since the appearance of the second edition, the focuson the dynamic response of cable supported bridges has increased,and this development is recognised with two new chapters, coveringbridge aerodynamics and other dynamic topics such aspedestrian-induced vibrations and bridge monitoring.

This book concentrates on the synthesis of cable supportedbridges, suspension as well as cable stayed, covering both designand construction aspects. The emphasis is on the conceptual designphase where the main features of the bridge will be determined.Based on comparative analyses with relatively simple mathematicalexpressions, the different structural forms are quantified andpreliminary optimization demonstrated. This provides a firstestimate on dimensions of the main load carrying elements to givein an initial input for mathematical computer models used in thedetailed design phase.

Key features:

Describes evolution and trends within the design andconstruction of cable supported bridges Describes the response of structures to dynamic actions thathave attracted growing attention in recent years Highlights features of the different structural components andtheir interaction in the entire structural system Presents simple mathematical expressions to give a firstestimate on dimensions of the load carrying elements to be used inan initial computer input

This comprehensive coverage of the design and construction ofcable supported bridges provides an invaluable, tried and testedresource for academics and engineers.
