Abstract
Sustainable Bridges is an EU-project. The objective of the project is to demonstrate that it is possible to enhance the load capacity of a bridge with refined analytical methods. This thesis will be a small part of the project. My objective in this thesis is to examine the dynamic loads generated in a bridge when trafficked.
Since there are uncertainties concerning the dynamic effect this
variable should be considered stochastic. Previous research confirms that the size of this variable is dependent on the force, the bending stiffness, the damping, the frequency and the velocity among others. In reliability analysis of a bridge there is a need of statistical information. This information is scarce for dynamic effects, therefore it will... (More)
