Study on Mechanical Properties of a through Tied Arch Bridge Model with Different Wind Bracing Forms
A through tied arch bridge model was designed and fabricated with removable and replaceable wind bracing. Through two methods, numerical simulation and model experiments, the effects of different wind bracing forms were studied, which was to the static characteristics, dynamic characteristics and stability of such kind of bridges, and the advantages and disadvantages of different forms of wind bracing were compared, which provided the corresponding references for the selection of rational wind bracing in actual bridge project.
