  2. 2. Train–Track–Bridge Interaction for the Analysis of Railway Bridges and Train Running Safety

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Therese Arvidsson; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamics; railway bridge; bridge deck acceleration; train–bridge interaction; vehicle model; wheel–rail force; running safety; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : In this thesis, train–track–bridge interaction (TTBI) models are used to study the dynamic response of railway bridges. A TTBI model considers the dynamics of the train in addition to that of the track–bridge system. The TTBI model enables the assessment of train running safety and passenger comfort. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sarah Tell; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamics; vibration mitigation; railway bridge; high-speed trains; bridge deck acceleration; passive damping; fluid viscous dampers; retrofit; dynamik; vibrationsdämpning; järnvägsbro; höghastighetståg; brobaneacceleration; passiv dämpning; viskösa dämpare; eftermontering; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : At the moment of writing, an expansion of the Swedish railway network has started, by constructions of new lines for high-speed trains. The aim is to create a high-speed connection between the most populous cities in Sweden - Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö, and the rest of Europe. READ MORE

  4. 4. Railway bridge response to passing trains Measurements and FE model updating

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johan Wiberg; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : Today’s railway bridges are analysed in more detail for moving loads due to the increase in speeds and axle loads. However, these numerical analyses are very time consuming as they often involve many simulations using different train configurations passing at different speeds and many considerations to take into account.

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; KTH.; [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
