[M S Troitsky] -- This book presents the evolution, theory and design of a bridge system which has great structural advantages for medium and long-span highway bridges. The book. Thus the economically efficient range of cable-stayed bridges is tending to move towards even larger spans, and cable-stayed bridges are increasingly the focus of interest worldwide.

This book describes the fundamentals Cable-stayed bridges. book design analysis, fabrication and construction, in which the author refers to built examples to illustrate all aspects. A cable-stayed bridge is one where the bridge deck is stayed by cables attached to towers.

It is a very efficient means of achieving a long span and aesthetically pleasing. The span of steel cable-stayed bridges has now exceeded m, with the Sutong Bridge spanning the Yangtze River in Cable-stayed bridges.

book with a main span of m, being the longest. A contemporary of astronomers Tycho Brache and Johannes Kepler, Vrancic produced the first known sketch of a cable-stayed bridge in his book "Machinae Novae." Today, cable-stayed bridges are a popular choice as they offer all the advantages of a suspension bridge but at a lesser cost for spans of to 2, feet ( to meters).

The cable stayed bridge is an elegant, economical and efficient structure. Virtually unknown 40 years ago, these bridges have become increasingly important as their properties have been more fully understood.

They have recently proved to be highly cost-effective for short to medium spans.

Cable stayed bridges date back many centuries; the system was used by Egyptians for their sailing ships. Early Chinese people used the cable-stayed system to construct suspension bridges out of hemp rope and iron chains [6].

There are many other examples of ancient cable-stayed bridge systems found around the world.

Constraction of this type of bridge continued into the 20th century when where built “Cassagnes bridge” (designed by A. Gisclard), le Coq's bridge at Lézardrieux in Brittany, France (designed by G.

Leinekugel and built in ), and aqueduct at Tempul in Concrete-decked cable-stayed bridge over the Donzère-Mondragon canal at Pierrelatte was designed by Albert.

Thus the economically efficient range of cable-stayed bridges is tending to move towards even larger spans, and cable-stayed bridges are increasingly the focus of interest worldwide.

IABSE, - Cable-stayed bridges - pages 1 Review The present book provides a comprehensive survey on the governing phenomena of cable vibration, both associated with direct action of wind and rain: buffeting, vortex-shedding, wake effects, rain-wind vibration; and resulting from the indirect excitation through anchorage oscillation 5/5(1).

Cable-stayed bridges have been around for more than years. The earliest design records can be found in the 16th century book Machinae Novae authored by Fausto Veranzio, a Venetian inventor.

However, it was not until that the theory was actually brought into practice. Back then, many bridges were constructed using a combination of the. The book examines all aspects of the design of cable stayed bridges. Starting with a brief history, it addresses general design criteria and current technology, as well as static and dynamic analysis.

The numerous illustrations provide examples of existing structures and document their critical parameters, including examples of outstanding. The cable-stayed bridge ranks first for a span range approximately from to m, which has spanning capacity longer than that of cantilever bridges, truss bridges, arch bridges, and box girder bridges, but shorter than that of suspension bridges.

Description Cable-stayed bridges. EPUB

Since the s many of them have been cable-stayed bridges. In the largest span length was m, in it increased to m, and today it is m. Thus the economically efficient range of cable-stayed bridges is tending. Cable-stayed bridges are structural systems effectively composing cables, main girders and towers.

This bridge form has a beautiful appearance and easily fits in with the surrounding environment. T wo cable-stayed bridges using precast, prestressed concrete segmental construction (see Figs.

1, 2 and 8) were recently erected for a freeway in the Czech Republic. One bridge was built across the Elbe River near Podebrady while the other bridge was built over a major railroad junction in Prague-Vrsovice.Cable-stayed bridges date back towhere designs were found in Machinae Novae, a book by Venetian inventor Fausto early suspension bridges were cable-stayed construction, including the footbridge Dryburgh Abbey Bridge, James Dredge's patented Victoria Bridge, Bath (), and the later Albert Bridge () and Brooklyn Bridge ().The second part of the book presents key applications of FRP composites in bridge construction and repair, including the use of all-composite superstructures for accelerated bridge construction, engineered cementitious composites for bridge decks, carbon fiber-reinforced polymer composites for cable-stayed bridges and for repair of deteriorated.
