A Proposal to Construct a Suspension Bridge to Connect the Provinces of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan by Vener A. Villanueva .
Cable stayed bridges are constructed along a structural system which comprises a deck and continuous girders which are supported by stays or inclined cables passing over or attached to tower located at the main piers.
Wide and successful application of cable – stayed systems was realized only recently, with the introduction of high strength steel, orthotropic type decks, development of welding techniques and progress in structural analysis. The development and application of electronic computers open up new and practically unlimited possibilities for the exact solution of these highly statistically indetermined systems and for precise statistical analysis of their dimensional performance.
Existing cable-stayed bridges provide useful data regarding design, fabrication, erection and maintenance of the new system
The researcher gathered the needed information from books, encyclopedia, periodicals and pamphlets. He interviewed Engineer Reynaldo M.Reyes who gave additional information pertinent and relevant to the topic under discussion.
