The purpose of this paper is to describe briefly the analytical approach used for determining the dynamic response of timber railway bridge spans. The predicted loads at the wheel-rail interfaces, vertical displacements, and accelerations at the midpoints of a ballast-deck span and an open-deck span are compared with those obtained experimentally. The analysis is used further to study the effects of other parameters, such as the train speed and the train consist, on the dynamic behaviour of the…

RESPONSE OF TIMBER BRIDGES UNDER TRAIN LOADING

Timber bridges are still commonly used by several North American railroads. For short spans, they offer attractive alternatives to other types of bridges because they are more economical, faster to

RAILWAY-BRIDGE IMPACT: SIMPLIFIED TRAIN AND BRIDGE MODEL

A lumped mass model of a railway bridge is developed where only the vertical degree-of-freedom for each joint is considered. The vehicle system is idealized as a three degree-of-freedom model of a

Bridge Impact due to Wheel and Track Irregularities

The impact factors in bridge members due to flat wheels and track irregularities were investigated. The maximum wheel flat height was taken as 0.2 in. (5 mm), maximum pier settlement as –0.25 in.

Dynamic Response of Beams Traversed by Two-Axle Loads

Analysis is based on assumption that dynamic deflection is proportional to static deflection due to weights of beam and loads; numerical results show quasi resonance effects due to successive
