Paper Title:
Study on Seismic Response Characteristics of Double Cables Suspension Bridge
  Abstract

Damping in double Cables suspension bridge composed of steel reinforcement beams and reinforced concrete tower is non-classical, which leads to coupled equations of motion in main coordinate system. Based on the complex damping theory, the viscous damping ratio is solved, which can be used to describe energy dissipation characteristics of non-classical damping system approximately. Seismic response of double chains suspension bridge is analyzed through an example of double chains suspension bridge, considering the geometric nonlinearity and non-classical damping. And numerical calculation is presented for seismic response subjected to independent effect or combination effect of three orthogonal components of seismic wave. Single cable suspension bridge can be taken as a special case of double cable suspension bridge, after the main cable shape coefficient is introduced. The dynamic responses of double cable suspension bridge and single cable suspension bridge are compared to reveal the characteristics of Seismic Response of double cable suspension bridge. The study of the dynamic responses characteristics of double cable suspension bridge has a positive significance on structural form selection of such type bridge during designing, dynamic performance evaluation and reinforcement design has positive significance.
