A computer analysis of the Vincent Thomas Suspension Bridge

Given the increasing assimilation of high density population centers, particularly in earthquake prone regions, engineering emphasis is shifting towards the evaluation of existing structures’ ability to withstand seismic loadings. With the advent of the computer revolution, scientists and engineers have increasingly more powerful computational tools with which to analyze structural system performance. This study centers on a three-dimensional analysis of the Vincent Thomas Suspension Bridge suspended spans.
