Book Description:
With the continuous raise of train speed and vehicle load, the extensive application of high performance materials, and the ever increasing span length of bridges, the problem of bridge vibrations becomes more prominent. This book contains the fundamental theory as well as numerical calculations and field experiments of many practical engineering projects. It contains many case studies concerning various types of real bridges such as long-span suspension bridges, cable-stayed bridges, truss bridges, multi-span simply supported bridges and continuous bridges. This book is intended to be a reference for solving vehicle-structure dynamic interaction problems that have to be considered in the design of railway bridges and other transport structures. Moreover, results of recent scientific research are presented which are of interest for researchers active in studying bridge vibration and control. (Imprint: Nova)
