Study of design parameters on flutter stability of cable-stayed bridges
Xin-Jun Zhang and Bing-Nan Sun

 
Abstract
    Flutter stability is one of major concerns on the design of long-span cable-stayed bridges. Considering the geometric nonlinearity of cable-stayed bridges and the effects due to the nonlinear windstructure interactions, a nonlinear method is proposed to analyze the flutter stability of cable-stayed bridges, and a computer program NFAB is also developed. Taking the Jingsha bridge over the YangtzernRiver as example, parametric analyses on flutter stability of the bridge are carried out, and some important design parameters that affect the flutter stability of cable-stayed bridges are pointed out.
 
Key Words
    cable-stayed bridge; design parameters; flutter stability; nonlinear flutter analysis.
