DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF MULTIGIRDER BRIDGES

This study develops a procedure for calculating the dynamic load of multigirder bridges for one or more than one vehicle passing over the bridge decks, and analyzes the impact as well as its lateral distribution of the multigirder bridges due to the vehicles moving over different road surface roughnesses with various speeds. The paper describes the equations of motion for vehicle and bridge, and then the bridge/vehicle interaction equations and road-surface roughness aspects. Experimental and theoretical results are compared.
