Dynamic amplification is one area in which the codes are sometimes overly conservative. Bridge dynamics is well researched but the majority of this research has concentrated on simply supported bridges. This paper examines the effect that introducing support rotational restraint has on bridge dynamic amplification factors. Finite element models are used with rotational springs at the bridge supports. This paper examines the effect of vehicle velocity on the dynamic amplification for the different end restraints.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||BCRI||Copyright (published version):||2010, BCRI||Keywords:||Boundary conditions; Dynamic amplification; Speed||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Bridge & Infrastructure Research in Ireland 2010, Cork Institute of Technology, September, 2010|
