Suspension bridges get their name from the fact that the roadway is suspended by cables from two tall towers. Engineers design the cable support systems in such a way that most of the weight of the bridge is supported by the two towers, which in turn dissipate the compression forces.

The longest suspension bridge in the world spans the Akashi Strait in Japan, linking Kobe to Awaji Island with a central span of over miles in length.

The entire bridge stretches over two miles. Download Bridge design and construction collection. Book collection consist of structural design and construction of concrete, steel and composite bridges including Cable-stayed bridges, Suspension bridges, Truss bridges, Beam bridges etc.

The iron chain bridge is the longest in the country, spanning nearly meters over the Pho Chhu River. The world's longest suspension bridges are listed according to the length of their main span (i.e.

the length of suspended roadway between the bridge's towers). The length of main span is the most common method of comparing the sizes of suspension bridges, often correlating with the height of the towers and the engineering complexity involved in designing and constructing the bridge.

Suspension bridge, bridge with overhead cables supporting its roadway. One of the oldest of engineering forms, suspension bridges were constructed by primitive peoples using vines for cables and mounting the roadway directly on the cables.

Bridge - Bridge - Suspension bridges: John Roebling died inshortly after work began on the Brooklyn Bridge, but the project was taken over and seen to completion by his son, Washington Roebling. Technically, the bridge overcame many obstacles through the use of huge pneumatic caissons, into which compressed air was pumped so that men could work in the dry; but, more important, it was.

Suspension bridges with stiffening girder •The stiffening girder transforms the concentrated load into a distibuted set of equal vertical pulls that are compatible with the shape of the cable •All the differences between the actual loading and the loading that corresponds to the File Size: 2MB.

A simple suspension bridge (also rope bridge, swing bridge (in New Zealand), suspended bridge, hanging bridge and catenary bridge) is a primitive type of bridge in which the deck of the bridge lies on two parallel load-bearing cables that are anchored at either end.

They have no towers or piers. The cables follow a shallow downward catenary arc which moves in response to dynamic loads on the Carries: Pedestrians, livestock.
