    Uddevalla Bridge Sweden, 1998 Stay cables installed strand-by-strand and equipped with anti-vibration systems.

    VSL products and servicesStay cable structures provide owners and architects witha high level of design freedom. As a specialist stay cablecontractor, VSL provides comprehensive technicalassistance from the earliest stage of the preliminarystudies right through to the detailed design andconstruction phases: consulting service to owners, engineers and contractors static analysis of the structure assistance in the dynamic analysis of cable

    vibrations and recommendation of solutions detailed design of the structure with optimised use

    of the stay cable system construction engineering geometry control during constructionand final

    adjustment method statements for the construction of the

    structure and cable installation supply and installation of stay cables, with

    incorporation of monitoring and anti-vibration systems design and supply of special equipment such as

    formwork, launching truss, climbform, etc. products and services for inspection, maintenance

    and repair works.

    VSLs capabilities, expertise and know-how are available todevelop the best-adapted solutions in co-operation with allpartners involved in the design, supply, installation andassembly of cable-suspended structures.

    VSL, a specialist stay cable contractor Leader in the field of post-tensioning andrelated engineering, VSL operates as a world-wide network through 40 subsidiaries locatedon 5 continents. Its post-tensioning systemshave been used throughout the world since1956, earning a well-merited reputation fortheir quality and efficiency.

    The SSI 2000 system reflects VSLsdevelopment of stay cable technology toprovide the best solution for ever-changingand complex engineering requirements. Thesystem offers high fatigue resistance, excellentcorrosion protection, cable force monitoring, aswell as strand adjustability, inspectability andreplaceability. VSL can now deliver even fasterinstallation and erection cycles.

    VSL LEADS THE WAY WITH A NEW STAY CABLE TECHNOLOGY

    Increasing spanning dimensions Because of their structural and economicadvantages, more cable-stayed structuressuch as footbridges, bridges and suspendedroofs have been built over the last 30 years.Potential spanning dimensions have alsoconsiderably increased.Stay cables used to be factory-manufacturedand assembled from parallel or locked coilwires. Then, a high-quality seven-wireprestressing strand was developed forprestressed concrete applications. It is nowused in prefabricated stay cables installed inbridges using heavy equipment. These strandsare placed in a steel or HDPE pipe andprotected by cement grouting. Since the performance of a cable-stayedstructure essentially depends on its stay cable

    properties, it became necessary to improve thetechnology and develop new, modern staycable systems able to meet demands such asincreased span lengths and durability.

    Stringent new standardsModern engineering is setting stringent newstandards for cable-stayed bridge systems.

    Designers and authorities are demanding: Increased stay cable durability: Critical factors

    are corrosion protection, good anchorageconditions, easy inspection and maintenance,replaceability and prevention of cable vibration.
