This paper is dealing with the structural behaviour of the stress ribbon bridges. It gives a general view about the critical points of these structures, it's a very good introduction to gain experience about these special bridges.

Cable stayed structures are formed by a slender deck that is suspended on stay cables anchored in
the tower and deck. It is possible to anchor back stays in the soil and create totally or partially
earth cable stayed structure. But from economical reasons this solution makes sense only in special
cases and/or for structures of long spans. The prevailing portion of the cable stayed structures is
formed by self anchored systems that stress the footings by vertical reactions only. The cable
stayed structures usually do not utilize increasing of the stiffness of the structural system by
anchoring of the deck at the abutments. However, the advantage of restricting the horizontal
movement at the abutments was demonstrated by the author in his latest designs of the pedestrian
bridges that will be built in Eugene, Oregon, USA, and Bohumín, ČR.
