Suspension Bridge- Engineering Lab Training Systems.
Suspension Bridge - Engineering Lab Training Systems A rigid bridge deck is carried each side by hangers of different lengths such that the flexible steel cables from which they hang are constrained to a parabolic curve. The twin suspension cables pass over pulleys each end of the 1 m span and terminate in yokes carrying load hangers. Adjustable stops prevent the yokes moving upward and mark the correct length from the cables. Steel bars are provided to simulate a uniformly distributed load, and a special point load is supplied. The set of weights needed for the experiment is included. Software is accessible for processing results.
