The need for large-scale bridges is constantly growing due to the enormous infrastructure development around the world. Since the 1970s many of them have been cable-stayed bridges. In 1975 the largest span length was 404 m, in 1995 it increased to 856 m, and today it is 1104 m. 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 of design analysis, fabrication and construction, in which the author refers to 250 built examples to illustrate all aspects. International or national codes and technical regulations are referred to only as examples, such as bridges that were designed to German DIN, Eurocode, AASHTO, British Standards. The chapters on cables and erection are a major focus of this work as they represent the most important difference from other types of bridges. The examples were chosen from the bridges in which the author was personally involved, or where the consulting engineers, Leonhardt, Andrä and Partners (LAP), participated significantly. Other bridges are included for their special structural characteristics or their record span lengths. The most important design engineers are also presented.

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: external and parametric excitation. Methodologies for assessment of the effects of those phenomena are presented and illustrated by practical examples. Control of cable vibrations is then discussed and state-of-art results on the design of passive control devices are presented.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Engineering - Civil Engineering, grade: unknown, University of Weimar, language: English, abstract: The vibration characteristic of a cable stayed bridges structure is the main axis of the study in this paper, many structural parameters are used to simulate and determine the effect of vibration on the structural performance by identifying the natural frequencies of the system and the mode shapes that can occur in the real structure. Modeling the stay cables with three famous styles of arrangements such as Harp, Semi Harp and Fan styles, and assigning roller, hinged and fixed boundary conditions on the deck support of the cable stayed bridge, in addition to using two design cases of the girders and pylons dimensions in the global structure for that purpose. Through the use of ABAQUS finite element analysis, the models were generated for each mentioned cases and the results of the frequency linear perturbation step of 10 mode shapes were determined through the simulation of the deformed shapes and the determined values of the natural frequencies of each mode for each case of interest. It was seen that the roller boundary condition was much prone to the early vibration and the stay cables of the direction near to the roller support were vibrated and stressed much more than the other direction compared with the hinged and fixed boundary conditions, and the mode shapes 7, 8, 9 and 10 were the most vibrated cases for all the boundary conditions without any distinction. The week design of the girders and the pylons has the great effect on the vibration of the stay cables, pylons and deck of the structure especially near the roller support direction due to the early vibration of the case of roller support, so the use of cross ties and damping between the stay cables and the girders are very important in the cases of significant vibrations which affect the performance of the cable stayed bridges.

Scientific Study from the year 2013 in the subject Engineering - Civil Engineering, grade: -, University of Weimar, course: Cable Stayed Bridges, language: English, abstract: In this research, many models of a cable stayed bridge were generated using ABAQUS finite element commercial software for the purpose of proceeding with nonlinear design optimization on the shape and topology of the structure. The cable stayed bridge models in all cases are with a constant length and width for the deck, also the pylons height under and above the deck is constant, but the shape of stay cables arrangement varies to three main famous arrangements which are Fan, Semi harp and Harp.In addition to change in the pylons shape which are three known shapes Double out, Single Center and Single inclined out, and it is worthy to mention that in all cases of the shape optimization of the pylons , the stay cables arrangements are Fan style, andby governing computational nonlinear optimization process on the finite element models in all cases of shape and topology optimization through using static general step for analysis and a certain meshing type with global seeding size for the Beam elements, with a fixed and pinned boundary conditions for the deck supports and fixed boundary for the pylons.Concentrated static loads assigned on the same positions on the deck for all models cases. A numerical optimization and graphical simulation of the results were used to determine many responsesin the model cases which areReactions, Deflections and Mises stresses in the structural models of the cable stayed bridge, especially at the deck, pylons and the stay cables which are the main components of the structure, also the same step in the deck and pylons supportshas been done for optimization outputs. It is apparent and clear that the cable stayed model with the Fan arrangement of the stay cables showed efficiency and the best topological model case for the structural design optimization that involved a safe, robust, rigid, and safe for the design of cable stayed bridges. The pylon shape with double out case was the best design situation compared with the other two models single center and single inclined out shapes, this point was obvious in the reactions, deflections and Mises stresses for the deck supports and the deck itself, and as a result the Double out with a Fan shape arrangement of the cable stays is the best model for the design of cable stayed bridges to resist the static loads.

The objective of the symposium was to acquaint the engineering and construction professionals with the current state-of-the-art of this rapidly growing bridge concept in order to assess future thought, study, development, and practice. Although initial contemporary design and construction have predominately occurred in Europe, currently there are cable-stayed bridges completed, under construction, and in design in the United States. The Pasco-Kennewick Bridge was in the final phase of superstructure assembly, allowing the symposium participants to view first hand the erection of this unusual structure. The bridge, which has a main span of 981 feet, is the first large cable-stayed bridge project undertaken in the United States. The cable-stayed portion of the bridge (1,794 feet long) is a segmentally pre-stressed concrete girder 80 feet wide and only seven feet deep. It is freely suspended on cable utilizing a new cable system unused before in the United States.

Abstract: Long-span cable-stayed bridges have gained increasing popularity due to their appealing aesthetics, increased stiffness compared to the suspension bridges, and relatively small size of bridge components. For cable-stayed bridges with steel girders in particular, fatigue has been one of the most important failure modes and the prediction of the remaining fatigue lives has been the primary focus in recent years. To enable the evaluation of fatigue performance, a reasonable baseline finite element model reflecting the real structural behaviour is indispensable. This thesis describes the establishment of baseline finite element models of cable-stayed bridges for fatigue analysis considering the mean stress effect. Ting Kau Bridge in Hong Kong is chosen as a real life example to demonstrate the practical application of the methods developed. Firstly, the initial cable forces of the finite element model of the cable-stayed bridge are calibrated to ensure that the initial geometry of the finite element model under permanent loading agrees with that specified on the as-built drawings within reasonable tolerance. The traditional cable force adjustment method is often a trial-and-error process which is empirical, time-consuming and occasionally difficult in convergence. An optimization method based on the Kriging surrogate model is therefore developed in order to establish the relation between the deck geometry and he initial cable forces of the cable-stayed bridge. The efficiency of the proposed approach is further verified using Ting Kau Bridge against the traditional method. Furthermore, the initial finite element model developed on the basis of engineering blueprints is updated by modifying the uncertain parameters so as to achieve a refined model using the Kriging predictor. An objective function can be formulated in terms of the discrepancy between the theoretical and measured responses captured by the Wind and Structural Health Monitoring System (WASHMS) installed on the bridge. A novel feature of the proposed method is that it enables the simultaneous use of static load testing data and the dynamic information, which is not feasible by using the conventional sensitivity-based approaches. Finally, the fatigue lives of selected critical components of Ting Kau Bridge are worked out with different methods including the deterministic and probabilistic approaches based on the baseline finite element model. In the deterministic approach, the equivalent annual standard fatigue vehicle spectrum is built based on the WASHMS measurements to estimate the damage accumulation and predict fatigue lives. In the probabilistic approach, a probabilistic loading model is proposed to simulate the vehicles running along the bridge by using the available information collected by the weigh-in-motion system. Combined with the traffic load model, a statistical approach is employed to obtain the stress time-histories, and the probability density curve of the fatigue life can be obtained. One significant advantage of the proposed method is that the diurnal variation of traffic flow within different time intervals can be accounted for properly. The results of these approaches are compared with one another. As the mean stress effect is significant in the estimation of fatigue lives, the baseline calibration of cable-stayed bridges is considered essential. DOI: 10.5353/th_b5185957 Subjects: Cab
