Title: A Mathematical Model of a Suspension Bridge Case Study: Adomi Bridge
Authors: Kwofie, Richard Ohene
Issue Date: 5-Oct-2011
Abstract: The Lazer – McKenna mathematical model of a suspension bridge applied to the Adomi Bridge in Ghana is presented. Numerical methods accessible in commercially available Computer Algebraic System “MATLAB” are used to analyse the second order non-linear ordinary differential equation. Simulations are performed using an efficient SIMULINK scheme, the bridge responses are investigated by varying the various parameters of the bridge
