The Impact of a Bump on the Response of a Bridge to Traffic

This paper uses planar vehicle-bridge interaction models to assess the increase in shear effects at the supports that a bump prior to the bridge may cause, and results for a range of bumps, bridge lengths, traffic configurations and road conditions are discussed.

Reduction of bridge dynamic amplification through adjustment damping

This paper presents a novel approach to the reduction of short-span bridge dynamic responses to heavy vehicle crossing events. The reductions are achieved through adjustment of the vehicle suspension

A drive-by inspection system via vehicle moving force identification

This paper presents a novel method to carry out monitoring of transport infrastructure such as pavements and bridges through the analysis of vehicle accelerations. An algorithm is developed for the

The use of a dynamic truck–trailer drive-by system to monitor bridge damping

Bridge structures are continuously subject to degradation due to the environment, ageing and excess loading. Periodic monitoring of bridges is therefore a key part of any maintenance strategy as it

Damage detection in bridges based on patterns of dynamic amplification

The relative changes in the proposed index as a result of damage are shown to clearly outperform the associatedrelative changes in frequencies, even for measurement locations far apart from the damage.

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



Effect of Vehicle Velocity on the Dynamic Amplification of a Vehicle Crossing a Simply Supported Bridge

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

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

Vibration of Continuous Bridges Under Moving Vehicles

Abstract The dynamic behaviour of multi-span continuous bridges under a moving vehicular load is investigated by considering the effect of interaction between the vehicle and the bridge pavement, the

Dynamic Response of a Bridge With Surface Deck Irregularities

This paper examines the effects of the surface deck irregularities on the dynamic response of a bridge, during the passage of a light or heavy vehicle. The authors especially try to find the effect


The dynamic loading on a multi-lane continuous bridge deck due to vehicles moving on top at a constant velocity is investigated. The bridge is modelled as a multi-span continuous orthotropic


This paper brings together and examines a lot of parameters that, usually, are not taken into account either during the design of a bridge or because some assumptions are supposed by the designer to

Effects of Vehicle Suspension Design on Dynamics of Highway Bridges

The dynamic response of short-span highway bridges in relation to heavy vehicles with leaf-spring and air-spring suspensions is examined in this paper. Calculation of the dynamic bridge responses is

Handbook of vehicle-road interaction

This handbook discusses tyre-road contact forces generated by heavy vehicles, their influence on road surface and bridge response and damage, as well as ways of assessing and improving vehicles so as
