A linearized formulation of the elastic theory of suspension bridges is confronted with early investigations in the field. For decades, the structure was schematized as a beam (deck or girder) relieved by a one parameter distribution of forces exerted by the cable, disregarding the influence of beam deflection on that distribution as given by the linearized approach. An anonymous note presented the essential conclusions of this theory anticipating results of investigations following the methods...
