Flex Gradient Optimization on Stiffened Steel Plate of Profiled Plate Rubber Support
The plate rubber support is widely used in railroad bridge. To analyse its capability of transverse displacement resistance and increase its life-span, the finite element model of profiled plate rubber support is established by nonlinear finite element method. The influence of flex gradient of stiffened steel plate to the function of the plate rubber support is analyzed and the optimal gradient is obtained.The method and conclusions are available for designing of plate rubber support.
