    A cable stayed bridge is a continuous girder (the flat bridge part) with one or two towers from which a series of cables are strung, stretching down diagonally to support the girder. This design allows for bridges to be lighter and made from fewer materials while still maintaining structural integrity. This also means that they can span farther distances than, say, a bridge made of stone. However, cable stayed bridges can be susceptible to the forces of wind, causing them to sway. This swaying power gives them the advantage in an earthquake.
