Numerical Study of Dynamic Response of Steel Deck Pavement on the Bascule Bridge
The bascule bridge is one of the most suitable bridge types for ports and rivers in cities. In order to discuss the mechanical behavior of the pavements in the opening process, the finite element model of the pavement system on the Haihe Bridge being built in Tianjin China was built, and the mechanical response in the opening process was calculated. The research results show that the asphalt paving with the thickness of 30mm~40mm is fit for the bascule bridge. The max shear stresses of pavement between pavement and steel plate in the opening process rise with the increase of Young’s modulus, and the high temperature during the construction and conservation after construction should be provided.
