The calculation of the eigenfrequencies and mode shapes of a suspension bridge using the present Matlab code is based on the theory of continuous beam and the theory of shallow cables. The mode shapes are obtained using Galerkin's method where a series expansion is used. The method was first applied by Sigbjörnsson & Hjorth-Hansen [1]. E. Strømmen [2] expanded their works to the vertical and torsional motion.

The bridge is represented as a horizontal streamlined beam, where the z-axis is the vertical axis, the y-axis is the along-beam axis and the x-axis is the cross-beam axis. The three motions of interests (lateral, vertical, and torsional) and both symmetric and asymmetric modes are computed.


  • eigenBridge is a function that computes the mode shapes and eigenfrequencies of the suspension bridge
  • Documentation.mlx: is an example of the application of this function
