Stress Ribbon and Cable-Supported Pedestrian Bridges
Stress Ribbon and Cable-Supported Pedestrian Bridges considers how slender concrete decks are used in the design of suspension and cable stayed structures. It looks at their characteristic feature - their rigidity, which is mainly given by the tension stiffness of prestressed concrete decking, so much so that movement caused by pedestrians or wind does not register as discomfort by users. Starting with a brief history this book describes structural types, addresses general design criteria, current technology, static and dynamic analysis and discusses the results of the static and dynamic loading tests. Illustrated throughout, Stress Ribbon and Cable-Supported Pedestrian Bridges provides numerous international examples and case studies of outstanding structures. This new edition has been fully updated to bring text in to line with Eurocodes and includes new examples and case studies to showcase the advances in design techniques and testing.
