Dynamic Response Analysis of Bridge Pier Subject to Earthquake and Ice Loads
In order to discuss the effect of earthquake and dynamic ice loads to a bridge pier, this paper considered the effect of added mass of dynamic water, and it deduced the dynamic equilibrium equations for a bridge pier subject to earthquake and dynamic ice loads on the basis of nonlinear Morision equation. Using numerical analysis method, it discussed the dynamic response of a bridge pier subject to different types of earthquake loads, forced ice loads, and both earthquake and forced ice loads. Through comparing the pier responses in different work conditions, it discovered that the dynamic responses of the bridge pier subject to forced dynamic ice loads rise and fall severely at the time of ice buckling broken periodic change. The coupling effects of forced dynamic ice loads and earthquake especially near-fault earthquake enhance the dynamic response of bridge pier significantly.
