Dynamic response of a pedestrian bridge to traffic load

Izabela J. Murzyn

Abstrakt

In the paper, a detailed analysis of the dynamic response of the pedestrian and cyclist footbridge to traffic loads typical for trucks, trains, metro and trams was presented. The representative time histories registered in the further cases were used as ground motion data in calculations of then dynamic response of the footbridge. The results of numerical analysis were checked with the criteria of vibration comfort for footbridges. The ABAQUS software was used for the dynamic calculations.
