Behavior of cable-stayed bridges built over faults
I.G. Raftoyiannis, G.T. Michaltsos and T.G. Konstantakopoulos

    Cable-stayed bridges are commonly used in modern bridge engineering for covering long spans. In some special cases, the designer is obliged to build such a bridge over an existing fault. Activation of this fault is possible to bring about a relative displacement or separation movement between two neighboring pylons of the bridge built on opposite sides of the fault. In this work, the effect of such a fault-induced pylon displacement on bridge
