The hanging-arc structure of the Ruck-A-Chucky Bridge is idealized for finite element analysis as a space assemblage of line elements with beam elements representing the girder and inclined axial elements representing the cables. Correctness of the analysis is verified by a shaking-table model. Test and analytical data of the model are compared. Seismic and aerodynamic responses of the two versions of the bridge, a steel and a concrete, as finally designed are presented.
