In order to find out the relationship between the responses caused by breakage of hanger and the structure, based on the bridge analyzed above, breakage of the left hanger H0 at the position of 1/4 of mid-span, as shown in Figure 11, is taken as an example to study the influences of flexural stiffness of girder, torsion stiffness of girder, flexural stiffness of main cable, weight of girder, weight of main cable, span to sag ratio of main cable, distance of hangers, span length, and breakage time of hanger on the dynamic responses.
When the span length of the bridge remains unchanged, the effects of distance of hanger on the dynamic responses caused by sudden breakage of hanger H0 are studied.
Figure 22 shows effects of breakage time [DELTA]t of hanger on hanger tension ratios.
