14 years on from its last edition, Cable Supported Bridges: Concept and Design, 3rd Edition has been significantly updated with corrections and brand new imagery throughout. Since the appearance of the second edition the dynamic response of cable supported bridges has increased in focus, and this development is recognised with a new chapter on dynamic actions.

Cable Supported Bridges concentrates on the synthesis of cable supported bridges covering both design and construction aspects. Featuring unique coverage of both suspension bridges and cable-stayed bridges, it presents simple mathematical expressions to give a first estimate on dimensions of the load carrying elements to be used in an initial computer input. The analytical part covers simple methods to quantify the different structural forms and allows a preliminary optimization of the main structure. It provides an invaluable, tried-and-tested resource for academics and engineers alike.
