Linear vertical vibrations of suspension bridges
Updated 14 May 2020
The vertical eigenfrequencies and mode shapes of a single-span suspension bridge are computed using the method by Luco et Turmo . For the sake of completeness, the computed modal parameters are compared with those obtained using the method by Sigbjørnsson & Hjorth-Hansen  and Strømmen .
The submission contains:
- eigenBridge.m (it is identical to File ID: #51815) and is inspired from [5,6]
- eigenridge2.m based on works of . I am simply writing the equations and their solutions in a numerical way.
- eigBridge_Verification.m: its only purpose is to verify the numerical implementation of eigenBridge2.m
- Verifications.mlx : It is a verification of the works of , where I try to obtain exactly what  show in their paper.
- Application.mlx: I compare eigenBridge.m with eigenBridge2.m
Any comment or idea of improvement is warmly welcome.
