Transfer Mechanism and Experimental Study of Tower of Liede Bridge
The text, drawing Liede Bridge as project background, gives a detailed analysis about the transfer mechanism of the cable tower, with the aid of analytic theory methods, FEM calculations and model tests. While these model tests and calculations show that, on one aspect, the cable tower meets design requirements and falls into a safe state under construction load and bridge load. On another, its theoretical values are in accordance with the test values generally. To illustrate that the cable tower's transmission is in line with the plane-stress problem in Elasticity Theory verifies the overall static performance in cable tower along with the theory of design calculation.
