 Abstract
This paper is to provide information for quantitative evaluation of suspension bridge engineering and construction technology, technology development, and long-span bridge R&D agenda. Technology classification structure and key words are established and survey to identify technology level is performed. Then, competitiveness of patents and journal articles is evaluated for Korea, USA, Japan, Germany, France, and England. As a result, USA and Japan are generally competitive countries for all technology categories based on patents and journal articles. Korea is grouped in upper-middle class for overall technology level of suspension bridge. However, there are some variances among the level of technologies. This research results could be utilized as reference to establish future long-span bridge R&D. Also, it can be a standardized methodology to compare technology levels among countries.
