Therefore, the equilibrium conditions for classical suspension bridges are formulated on the basis of certain assumptions: (a) the main cable is absolutely flexible and has a square parabola as its initial shape when the bridge is subjected to the dead load only; (b) all structural elements are made from ideally elastic materials; (c) the elastic elongation and horizontal displacements of the hangers can be neglected; (d) the height as well as the bending stiffness of the stiffening girder is constant along the entire span of the bridge ([h.
