In this study, a closed form solution to calculate the reactions of transmission line conductors subjected to downburst loads is derived. The derivation is conducted using a simplified multi-spanned conductor– insulator system, where the insulators to the right and to the left of the tower of interest are modeled using a combination of roller supports and(More)

Cable stayed bridges have good stability, optimum use of structural materials, aesthetic, relatively low design and maintenance costs, and efficient structural characteristics. Therefore, this type of bridges are becoming more and more popular and are usually preferred for long span crossings compared to suspension bridges. A cablestayed bridge consists of(More)
