This paper establishes an analytical model for statical wind resistance of middle-span cable-stayed bridges based on the elastic-plastic large displacement theory of 3-D thin-wall structures, and taking into consideration the cable sag effect, the beam-column effect on towers and beams, and the geometric large-deflection and material nonlinear effects on the entire structure. The results of the study show that, with respect to middle-span cable-stayed bridges, a broken cable changes the initial value of the initial angle of attack. Moreover, differences in the position of the broken cable lead to changes in limit wind velocity. But overall, with respect to a single broken cable on a middle-span cable-stayed bridge, the ability of wind resistance remains within a reasonable range.
