Re: Suspension pedestrian bridge

Dave -

I must admit some confusion.

 The bridge and consequently the loading is not centered on the cable span.

How is the bridge not centered on the cable span?  If the cables span
from face to face, does the bridge not entirely reach both faces?  Or
do you mean the cables are asymmetric about the long axis of the
bridge (i.e. deck is closer to cable 1 than cable 2)?

How much does the target bridge look like the classic "bridge in the
jungle" that appears in nearly every Indiana Jones movie?
