INDUCED VIBRATIONS OF A FLEXIBLE GUIDEWAY SUBJECTED TO A LONG RAILROAD TRAIN

ANGEFACHTE SCHWINGUNGEN EINER ELASTISCHEN FAHRBAHN BEI DER UEBERFAHRT EINES LANGEN ZUGES

The non-uniform mass distribution of a long train is modelled by a periodic continuous load. This moving load can cause resonance and instability of the vibrations of a bridge or a beam-elevated guideway. The amplitude of vibration increases with time, and therefore with the length of the crossing train. An approximation is given for that length where the vibration amplitude reaches some critical value. By suitably relating the beam length to the car length the resonance amplitude can effectively be reduced.
