Xupu Cable-Stayed Bridge, Shanghai, China
Abstract:The Xupu Bridge is the third cable-stayed bridge to be constructed in the greater Shanghai area in recent years. When completed, it will form an important part of Shanghai Outer Ring Road. The two previous cable-stayed crossings in the Shanghai region, the Nanpu and Yangpu bridges, were steel-concrete composite designs. Given the considerable experience accumulated in this type of structure, it was decided to use the same method for the Xupu Bridge. The main span is 590 m long. The main pylons are A-shaped, rising to a height of 217 m. The deck is 36 m wide for eight lanes of traffic, with a 0.75 m maintenance on each side.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
