Behavior of Super Long Span Cable-Stayed Bridges during the Construction
In order to accurately reflect the effects and the spatial and temporal variation of long span cable-stayed bridge during the construction process, this paper, based on total CR formulation and the catenary cable element, improves the existing methods of geometrically nonlinear analysis and then develops a new software for nonlinear analysis of bridge through the entire construction.
