Abstract: Based on fatigue test results of corroded wires obtained from dissection of actual parallel wire cables which were used on a certain domestic cable-stayed bridge, the fatigue properties of corroded parallel wire cable are investigated by the method of Monte Carlo simulation in this paper. The results of fatigue life and corrosion degree of corroded wire are presented. Comparisons between the original design information and fatigue test results, it can be seen that corrosions make the fatigue lives of wires dec…
