With the development and wide application of extradosed cable stayed bridge, an effective method is needed for simulation of the stress distribution in anchorage zone, which plays a vital role in transferring force from the cable to the pylon and diverting the cable direction. Based on the Finite Difference Method (FDM), an efficient and practical method of stress filed simulation was presented in the paper. First, a plane finite element model was established using ABAQUS, to determine the boundary condition for FDM. Based on this, FDM was used to simulate the stress distribution of the concrete in the anchorage zone. Finally, on the simulation result was calculated and in comparison with finite element model result. It has been found that: The vertical compressive stress of concrete in the anchorage zone gradually reduces from the middle to the two sides, and the stress assumes double peak type in transverse. Compared with the finite element solutions, the approximate solution simulated by FDM improve the computational efficiency with certain accuracy keeping, except the loading area. In vertical orientation, the concrete in the place of H (the width of the pylon) from cable force acting position is in a state of uniform stress.
