A General Computer Programme for the Solution of Suspension Bridge Problems

A General Computer Programme for the Solution of Suspension Bridge Problems

The computer programme described uses as a basis a general computer programme for the non-linear behaviour of structural frameworks when the effect of the deflexions cannot be ignored. The modifications are for ‘lack of fit’ of cable and hanger elements in the dead load condition and for the ‘gravity’ component of the cable stiffness. An example of the application of the programme to the deck erection calculations for the Severn suspension bridge is given. D.M. Brotton
