During the last decades, several studies on suspension bridges under wind actions have been developed in civil engineering and many techniques have been used to approach this structural problem both in time and frequency domain. In this paper, four types of time domain techniques to evaluate the response and the stability of a long span suspension bridge are implemented: nonaeroelastic, steady,quasi steady, modified quasi steady. These techniques are compared considering both nonturbulent and turbulent flow wind modelling. The results show consistent differences both in the amplitude of the response and in the value of critical wind velocity.
