The results of the simulations indicate the efficiency and applicability of the presented manual tuning method for updating the finite element model of cable-stayed bridges.
The new aspects regarding effective material and structural parameters and model tuning procedure presented in this paper will be useful for analyzing and model updating of cable-stayed bridges.
Shifting the point of view, the larger structure is called an extension or a superstructure of its substructure.
The finite element method (FEM) (its practical application often known as finite element analysis) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions of partial differential equations (PDE) as well as integral equations.

The model tuning through sensitivity analysis is a prominent procedure to assess the structural behavior and dynamic characteristics of cable-stayed bridges.
The updating parameters are selected through the sensitivity analysis which helps to better understand the structural behavior of the bridge.
