Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges
Selected and revised papers from the Advanced Course on ‘Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges’, Porto, Portugal, 20-23 September 2005
The dynamic behaviour of bridges strongly affects the infrastructure system of high-speed railways, and is a crucial factor in safety issues and passenger comfort. Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges covers the latest research in this field, including:
– Recently developed dynamic analysis techniques;
– Train excitations;
– Design issues for high-speed railway bridges
– Fatigue conduct of viaducts and large span bridges;
– Bridge dynamic behaviour;
– Case studies.
Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges will be invaluable to professionals, scientists, public institutions and students involved in the design, construction and maintenance of high-speed railway bridges.
