Engineers in the United States are planning and designing cable-stayed bridges despite the paucity of design and construction data in the American technical literature. There are no American standard codes governing the design of cable-stayed bridges at this time. This report is presented as a guide to the design and construction of cable-stayed bridges and as such, it is a recommended practice not a code or specification. This report has been developed in the hope that it may be useful until such time as a more complete specification may be presented to the profession by American specification and code writing bodies. The report presents information relative to loads and forces, design assumptions, analysis, deflections, cables, saddles and end fittings, corrosion protection, fabrication, erection, inspection, temperature, fatigue, and aerodynamics.
