Cable-stayed bridges

Cable-stayed bridges have a structure with several points in each span between the towers  supported upward in a slanting direction with cables, and consist of main towers, cables, and girders. Main towers are classified into such types as single-column, double-column, H-shaped, A-shaped, inverse Y-shaped, portal, and diamond. Cabling methods include single-plane suspension, double-plane suspension, fan pattern, and harp pattern. In general, the span applied to cable-stayed brides ranges from about 130 to 500 meters. JFE Engineering has manufactured and constructed a large number of cable-stayed bridges to date both in Japan and overseas, including the Tatara Bridge (center span: 890 meters), which was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world at the time of its completion.
