Synopsis A Graphical Interpretation of of the Deflexion Theory for Suspension Bridge Analysis by P.T. F. Feenan

The graphical procedure presented in this paper is an extension of the linearized deflexion theory for suspension bridge analysis which brings the theory more into the region of preliminary design. By construction of graphical models to represent equations derived by a reformulation of the classical deflexion theory approximate values of deflexion, bending moment and hanger load distribution across the span can be quickly calculated for all typical loading cases.
