Many writers, using both experimental tests and complex numerical models, have examined the effect of vehicle velocity on a highway bridge’s dynamic amplification. Although these tests and models give valuable quantitative information on dynamic amplification, they give little insight into how amplification is affected by individual vehicle/bridge parameters. This paper uses relatively simple numerical models to investigate the effect of vehicle velocity on a bridge’s dynamic amplification. A… 

The Effect of Vehicle Velocity on the Dynamic Amplification of Two Vehicles crossing a Simply Supported Bridge

The effect of multiple vehicles on a bridge’s dynamic amplification is a complex problem. Previously authors have examined multiple vehicle presence by constructing elaborate finite element models or

Footprint caused by a vehicle configuration on the dynamic amplification of the bridge response

The passage of a vehicle over a bridge leaves a unique footprint in the form of measured strains (or displacements) across the structure. This paper proposes a new level I damage detection method for

Random Vibration Analysis of Dynamic Vehicle-Bridge Interaction Due to Road Unevenness

Vehicle-bridge interaction has been studied for a long time to investigate the structural behavior of bridges and vehicle ride comfort. An original frequency domain method is presented where the

Title The development of a dynamic amplification estimator forbridges with good road profiles

The paper considers the influence of the surface profile on the dynamic amplification of a simply supported bridge when subject to a quarter car vehicle model. The effect of the profile

Dynamic Amplification Factor of Continuous versus Simply Supported Bridges Due to the Action of a Moving Vehicle

Research to date on Dynamic Amplification Factors (DAFs) caused by traffic loading, mostly focused on simply supported bridges, is extended here to multiple-span continuous bridges. Emphasis is

DYNAMIC EFFECTS CAUSED BY THE VEHICLE-BRIDGE INTERACTION

  • Engineering

This paper presents research on the interaction between a bridge and a vehicle moving over it. A vehicle moving over a bridge causes dynamic effects that can be indicated by different dynamic

Dynamic Impact Factors for Simply-Supported Bridges Due to Vehicle Braking

Previous studies have shown that the dynamic impact factors of bridges caused by vehicle braking may exceed those prescribed in the bridge design codes. While simple vehicle and bridge models were
