The influence of increased train loads on the dynamic amplification for bridge action effects are investigated using simple models such as two-mass oscillators. The results show, the bridge dynamic amplification factor decreases when carriage weights are increased. This procedure facilitates more accurate calculation of fatigue stresses.
