Some Aspects of the Mechanical Solution of Influence Diagrams (Concluded)

Suspension Bridge with a hinged stiffening truss. The main suspension cable consists of links a, b, c, d, e, f, h, j and k and is assumed to be connected to rigid supports at (a) and (k). Vertical suspenders connect the cable to the stiffening girder which is hinged at the mid point of the bottom chord. No suspender is assumed to act at this hinge. The left hand end of the stiffening girder is hinged to supports while the right-hand end is allowed to move horizontally. H.A. Whitaker
