The dynamic responses of two kinds of simple-supported beams with single layer and double-layer under a moving load were analyzed based on the theory of nonlinear dynamics. The equations of motion are derived by using Hamilton’s principle and von Karman type equations for the two models. Galerkin’s method was employed to obtain the ordinary differential equations of motion. First we obtain the periodic motion waveforms in the mid-point of the beams at the same initial velocity, and the result show that the amplitude of the double-layer model is much smaller then that of the single-layer model. Then for the two models, the vibration response and critical velocity were studied considering the effect of the structural parameters, the magnitude and velocity of moving load. The results of numerical simulation show that double-layer beam model has better vibration suppression performance than single-layer beam model.
