Large-Amplitude Periodic Oscillations in Suspension Bridges: Some New Connections with Nonlinear Analysis

  author={Alan C. Lazer and P. J. McKenna},
  journal={SIAM Review},
This paper surveys an area of nonlinear functional analysis and its applications. The main application is to the existence and multiplicity of periodic solutions of a possible mathematical models of nonlinearly supported bending beams, and their possible application to nonlinear behavior as observed in large-amplitude flexings in suspension bridges. A second area, periodic flexings in a floating beam, also nonlinearly supported, is covered a t the end of the paper.
