Abstract
Cable-supported structures can be classified as cable-supported plane structure, separable cable-supported spatial structure and inseparable cable-supported spatial structure, according to different mechanical characteristics and force transferring principles. Cable-supported plane structure includes beam string and truss string structure, and inseparable cable-supported spatial structure contains suspendome, cable-supported barrel vault, cable-supported concrete roof, cable-supported arch-dome and cable-supported latticed shell and etc. Then the research progress of structural behavior of beam string structure and suspendome structure are introduced in this paper. Cable is the key structural component in cable-supported structures and its mechanical properties can influence the bearing behaviors and safety evaluation of cable-supported structures. Therefore a brief discussion and key issues of cable researches are presented here. Besides, researches on two advanced cable strut joints for cable-strut or member-strut connections are also introduced. In the end, a brief overview of the overall development of cable-supported structure and some future works are presented.
