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 structures which have recently been completed.
The chapter dealing with stay technology has been thoroughly updated to take into account the new, better quality products available from cable suppliers.
The results of extensive experimental investigations concerning cable stayed bridges with slender decks, mentioned briefly in the first edition, are also presented here.
