Dynamic FE analysis of a continuous steel railway bridge and comparisons with field measurements

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present proper finite element (FE) models which can predict the dynamic characteristics and behaviour of a railway bridge under dynamic train loading for the purposes of fatigue design and assessment. As a case study, an existing six-span continuous welded plate girder railway bridge in Stockholm is investigated. A number of… (More)
