SUSPENSION BRIDGE

in bridge •  last year 


The suspension bridge is a type of bridge that uses the support of cable tension rather than the side pedestal. A suspension bridge usually has a main cable (steel or other chain) docked at each end of the bridge. Any load applied to the bridge turns into tension in the main cable. At first the suspension bridge has wires anchored on the ground at both ends of the bridge, but some modern suspension bridges anchor the wires to the end of the bridge itself.

The early suspension bridge does not have a tower. Currently the suspension bridge rests on a vertical cable attached to a string between the pedestal towers. Any load applied to the bridge turns into tension in the main cable. The initial suspension bridge has wires anchored on the ground at both ends of the bridge, but some modern suspension bridges anchor the cables to the end of the bridge itself. The initial suspension bridge has no tower or dock, but this is present in most of the larger suspension bridges
