Deflection Analysis of Beams from Vehicle Velocity
In this work, the modeling and calculations referring to the deflection of special artworks are presented. The type train is modeled as two degrees of freedom and mobile base, with the bridge deck being considered the mobile base. The base is treated as an elastic beam, according to the Euler-Bernoulli theory. The fundamental assumption made is that the relative displacements between the vehicle and the bridges are synchronous. This allows the calculation of natural frequencies, eigenvalues and normal modes of vibration of the beam. The temporal response of the beam deflection is obtained, assuming that the vehicle employs, at each instant of time, an impulse load on the beam. Numerical simulations are performed to improve the understanding of the dynamic behavior of the structure.
