Description

Cable-supported bridges are known for their visual elegance, aesthetic appeal and ability to link long spans. The extent of issues of concern associated with these structures is commensurate with their size and vast scale. Significant advances in the technology of assessment, design, construction and maintenance of cable-supported bridges have been achieved in the past few years, due to increasing awareness, collaboration and information exchange.This book contains selected papers on cable-supported bridges as presented at the 5th International Cable-Supported Bridge Operators' Conference, held in New York City on August 28-29, 2006. It includes papers by leading international bridge engineers. Presenting state-of-the-art material, the book is an authoritative account on the developments in the field, this volume forms essential reading to anyone working on cable-supported bridges.
