Abstract

This paper provides an analysis of the aesthetic and structural and vibrational properties of the cable stayed section of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Both theoretical and software analysis of the bridge have been included. Information given in this paper helps to interpret the critical analysis such as the complex construction process and the analytical method used for the bridge. BandraWorli Sea Link has become more popular in handling traffic, thus a thorough calculation and analysis of natural frequency of the bridge needs to be examined with the vibrational frequency of the environmental and traffic conditions to avoid resonance. Modal Analysis using ANSYS helps to determine the natural frequency of the bridge and understand the various modes shapes and makes it possible to study the limits, reasons and prevent the bridge from collapsing. Giving context to the paper.
