Abstract: The Dynamic Amplification Factor for Bridges is of major concern in both their design and assessment. Research to date has focused on the single truck event. However, in many bridges the critical loading case is that of multiple truck presence on the deck. To accurately determine the dynamic amplification factor it is necessary to examine the effects of multiple trucks traversing a bridge. Experiments in Slovenia were carried out to examine the dynamic amplification factor for single and two truck events. Numerical models were constructed and validated from these experiments. These models were then used to compare the dynamic amplification factors produced from both single and multiple trucks crossing the bridge at various speeds. Important conclusions are drawn for bridge design and assessment purposes.
