AERODYNAMIC STABILITY OF CABLE-STAYED BRIDGES SIMPLIFIED

This paper shows how simply the aerodynamic stability of cable-stayed bridges can be checked by calculation. The adequacy of this approximate method is demonstrated by the posterior analysis of 15 existing cable- stayed bridges and of two under construction, for part of which either the natural frequencies have been measured in situ or the critical wind speeds in wind tunnels.
