Forces on a Suspension Bridge

Forces on a Suspension Bridge

Product Details:


Product Description


Suspension Bridges Are Among The Oldest Of All Bridge Designs. Their Main Supporting Element Is A Flexible Cable. Since Cables Are Able To Absorb High Tensile Forces While Themselves Having Little Dead-Weight, They Enable Wide-Span Suspension Bridges To Be Constructed. This Makes It Possible To Bridge Longer Distances With No Supporting Pillars, Such As Over Wide Gorges. The Sag Of Suspension Bridge Supporting Cables Is Parabolic In Shape, As The Weights Are Attached At Relatively Short, Constant Intervals By Way Of Vertical Cables To The Main Supporting Cables.
