  1. 1. Essential modelling details in dynamic FE-analyses of railway bridges

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Raid Karoumi; Guido De Roeck; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur;

    Abstract : The increased need to reduce the use of fossil fuels imposes higher demands on the efficiency of rail transportation. Therefore, an improved knowledge regarding the dynamic properties of railway bridges and infrastructure for railway traffic in general is required. READ MORE

  2. 2. Some aspects of the dynamic soil-structure interaction of a portal frame bridge

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Raid Karoumi; Mohammed Hjiaj; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : For certain bridge types, the influence of soil-structure interaction (SSI) may have an important contribution to the stiffness and damping of the structural system. From a design point of view, this influence may be both conservative and non-conservative and therefore, an increased knowledge within this field could lead to better design assumptions. READ MORE

  3. 3. End-Shield Bridges for High-Speed Railway Full scale dynamic testing and numerical simulations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hesham Elgazzar; Jean-Marc Battini; Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Morgan Johansson; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; high-speed railway; end-shield bridges; structural dynamics; soil structure interaction; full scale bridge testing; controlled forced excitation; hydraulic bridge exciter; frequency response function; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : The increasing need for High-Speed Railway (HSR) to reduce the travelling time requires increasing research within this field. Bridges are main components of any railway network, including HSR networks, and the optimization of their design for this purpose would contribute to a faster and more cost effective development of the HSR network.

  4. 4. Dynamic soil-structure interaction of simply supported high-speed railway bridges

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Lind Östlund; Jean-Marc Battini; Andreas Andersson; Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Rui Calçada; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic soil-structure interaction; Railway bridge; Impedance function; Soil dynamics; High-speed train; Bro- och stålbyggnad; Structural Engineering and Bridges;

    Abstract : Research performed on the subject of dynamic soil-structure interaction (SS) concerning railway bridges is presented in this thesis with the focus on simply supported railway bridges supported by shallow foundations in soil strata on bedrock. The research aims to obtain insight into the SSI of high-speed railway bridges and to provide recommendations on how to model the soil-bridge system from a design perspective. READ MORE

  5. 5. Footbridge Dynamics Human-Structure Interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Emma Zäll; Raid Karoumi; Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Andreas Andersson; Peter Van den Broeck; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamics; vibration; footbridge; pedestrian bridge; human-structure interaction; runner; running loads; simplified models; Dynamik; vibration; gångbro; människa-bro-interaktion; löpare; löparlaster; förenklade modeller; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : For aesthetic reasons and due to an increased demand for cost-effective and environmentally friendly civil engineering structures, there is a trend in designing light and slender structures. Consequently, many modern footbridges are susceptible to excessive vibrations caused by human-induced loads. READ MORE
