[Abstract]: In this paper we study, from the numerical point of view, a dynamic problem which models a suspension bridge system. This problem is written as a nonlinear system of hyperbolic partial differential equations in terms of the displacements of the bridge and of the cable. By using the respective velocities, its variational formulation leads to a coupled system of parabolic nonlinear variational equations. An existence and uniqueness result, and an exponential energy decay property, are recalled. Then, fully discrete approximations are introduced by using the classical finite element method and the implicit Euler scheme. A discrete stability property is shown and a priori error estimates are proved, from which the linear convergence of the algorithm is deduced under suitable additional regularity conditions. Finally, some numerical results are shown to demonstrate the accuracy of the approximation and the behaviour of the solution.
