Abstract: An exact method is presented for analyzing multispan suspension bridges taking the interaction of consecutive spans into consideration. However, if tower deflections are properly assumed, each span can be analyzed separately. A simple formula is given that renders sufficiently accurate tower deflections. Numerical examples are presented.
