Dynamic Performance Analysis for a Butterfly-Shaped Arch Bridge
The dynamic characteristics are not only the important indexes for evaluating the bridge structural rigidity, but also the principal parameters for structural dynamic analysis and earthquake resistant analysis. In this paper, a three dimensional solid finite element model for a butterfly-shape arch bridge in Zhongshan city was established to analyze the dynamic characteristics. By comparison the numerical calculation results with measured results of the dynamic loading test, an analysis and evaluation of the dynamic performance of this new type spatial arch bridge was made, and can serve as reference to the dynamic analysis and seismic design of similar bridges.
