Dynamic Performance Analysis on High-Speed Railway Continuous Girder Bridge
The dynamic performance of continuous girder under the train in a series of speed is studied through examples, and the main conclusions are given in the following. The resonance mechanism of continuous girder is similar to simply supported beam. The vehicle wheel load forms regular moving load series, which induces periodical action and resonance of the bridge. The damping ratio of bridge itself has less effect on the amplitude at the loading stage, but significant effects appear when the load departs from the bridge. The count of continuous spans also has less impact on the dynamic coefficients, so three continuous spans can be adopted for calculation and analysis. Span and fundamental frequency have significant influence on dynamic coefficients of bridge structures. To extend the span of the bridge structure can reduce the dynamic coefficient while keeping its frequency invariant. The fundamental frequencies of different bridges are corresponding to certain resonant speeds, which calls for the attention in the design.
