Cable Suspension Bridge

A suspension bridge is a type of bridge in which the deck is hung below suspension cables on vertical suspenders. The basic structural components of a suspension bridge system include stiffening girders/trusses, the main suspension cables, main towers, and the anchorages for the cables at each end of the bridge. The main cables are suspended between towers and are finally connected to the anchorage or the bridge itself, and vertical suspenders carry the weight of the deck and the traffic load on it. Like other cable supported bridges, the superstructure of suspension bridges is constructed without false work as the cable erection method is used. The main load carrying member is the main cables, which are tension members made of high-strength steel. The whole cross-section of the main cable is highly efficient in carrying the loads and buckling is not problem. Therefore, the dead weight of the bridge structure can be greatly reduced and longer span becomes possible. In addition, the esthetic appearance of suspension bridges is another advantage in comparison with other types of bridges.
