Dynamic Amplification Factors for Bridges with Various Boundary Conditions (2010)

Abstract It is important that the assessment of bridges be as accurate as possible. Dynamicamplification is one area in which the codes are sometimes overly conservative.Bridge dynamics is well researched but the majority of this research has concentratedon simply supported bridges. This paper examines the effect that introducing supportrotational restraint has on bridge dynamic amplification factors. Finite element modelsare used with rotational springs at the bridge supports. This paper examines the effectof vehicle velocity on the dynamic amplification for the different end restraints.
