Analyze on Safety Evaluation of Masonry Arch Bridge by the Chain-Styled Theory
The mechanism of Masonry Arch Bridge is discussed by chain disaster theory in this paper. Result on Analyzing of the causes of disease reveals a complex chain relationships and the stage of disease development. Cutting chain detection, prevention and strengthening are proposed for safety evaluation of masonry arch bridge by the chain-styled theory. According to chain disaster theory, damage mechanism of Masonry Arch Bridge (Holly Bridge) is analyzed, and strengthening measures have been proposed.
