Using two degrees of freedom (DOF) experimental flutter derivatives to perform threedimensional flutter analysis for a cable-supported bridge is a widely practiced method. It is important to consider the P-derivatives effect to have more accurate analysis for a long span bridge. Through a case example, this paper studied some of the issues relating to the P-derivatives effects on flutter. The operational condition in two-DOF experiments was discussed. One inherent limitation of two-DOF experiments was suggested. Three-DOF experiment was performed. The effect of the omission of P-derivatives was studied.
