Figure 5: Third application: couple of cables, connected to each other and to deck, subject to traffic. (a) Given geometry and loading. (b) Cross sections of main cables and cross-ties. (c) Initial static analysis. (d) Parameters of dynamic analysis. (e), (f) Resulting time-histories of displacements of upper and lower cables. (g), (h) Resulting time-histories of axial forces of upper and lower cross-tie. (i), (j) Resulting hysteresis stress-strain loops of upper and lower cross-ties.
