Our firm has been hired to evaluate the anchorages for the main cables of a historic suspension bridge.

Part of the assessment is to determine the force generated in one main cable due to the dead load of the bridge. A team member has already calculated the uniform distributed load, and we have the bridge dimensions from the Port Authority.

Our task is to find the cable force due to the dead load as it arrives at the anchorage. A team member is developing a computer model to perform a nonlinear analysis of the cable. We are providing an approximate solution to use for comparison.
