STATISTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF AXLE LOADS AND STRESSES IN RAILWAY BRIDGES. INTRODUCTION AND DEFINITIONS
This report presents the introductory philosophy to the analysis of strains in railway bridges subjected to traffic. The fundamental terms for the dynamics and random vibrations of bridges, statistics and probability are defined. These definitions are accompanied by illustrative examples with applications to railway bridges. Several methods for the solution of the question are suggested.
