Cable-stayed bridges represent backbones in the infrastructure networks and their adequate seismic response must be ensured. These structures present complex interactions between the deck, the cables, the towers and their foundation. This, in combination with the reduced damping and the outstanding slenderness of cable-stayed bridges, renders a unique dynamic response. A complete review on the state of knowledge about the seismic behaviour of cable-stayed bridges is presented here, with special attention to the analysis techniques. The current design trends in the seismic design and control of cable-stayed bridges are also presented.
