In this study the aim is to present results of bridge concept design using heuristic fuzzy optimum design and FEM. The bridge concept is chosen as the basic suspension type. The deck plate rests on four supports. The middle supports are towers with suspension cables to lift up the bridge plate for minimising its deflection and bending stresses. Mass distribution load and flutter loading act on the plate. Geometric design variables are topology and dimensions of cables and deck.
