  • Quantifying dynamic properties of bridges for bridgevehicle interaction modelling [Elektronski vir]
    Kreslin, Maja, 1980- ...
    Bridge weigh-in-motion systems measure axle loads and spacings of all vehicles in the traffic flow and have as such an important role in the field of traffic and road infrastructure management. They ... require a existing bridge, which is often sensitive to environmental influences. Consequently, accuracy of the weighing results depends on various factors. One of the key ones is the unevenness of road surface that causes unpredictable dynamic vehicle-bridge interaction. This problem was investigated within the research project that dealt with influence of the road surface unevenness on accuracy of bridge weigh-in-motion results. This paper presents the experimental part of the project which dealt with the spatial numerical model for simulating the response of a bridge with uneven road surface during crossing of a vehicle. The comparison of the numerical results with the results of extensive field tests, primarily strains and displacements of the bridge due to the crossings of selected vehicles, shows that the mathematical model in Abaqus software is well able to reproduce the measured response of bridge-vehicle interaction.
