Longitudinal Seismic Response Analysis of MSSS Bridge in Qinghai-Tibet Railway
This paper presents the results of seismic behavior analysis of a multi-span simply supported (MSSS) bridge in Qinghai-Tibet Railway. The main goal is to examine the effects of frozen soil condition and wave passage on seismic behavior of MSSS Bridge. A 2D FE model was established by ANSYS software in order to evaluate the effects of modeling, in which bearings and pounding effects were also considered. Results indicate that frozen soil condition has an important effect on the seismic response in longitudinal direction; wave passage can influence the seismic response of MSSS Bridge within a certain range of seismic wave travelling velocity.
