The paper briefly presents selected basic kinds of excitation of cable vibration caused by dynamic effect of wind. It describes the aerodynamic phenomena such as vortex excitation, wind-rain excitation, galloping and buffeting. Cables are structures which are characterised by low internal damping, low rigidity and low weight, so they are not capable of total excitation energy dissipation, hence they can reach large amplitudes of vibration. Large amplitude of vibration causes excessive stress, thereby lowering the safety of the structure.
