The bridge is modelled as a one-dimensional discretized finite element beam and the moving load is represented by a point force. A constant modulus of elasticity is traditionally employed when simulating the dynamic response of structures under moving loads. In this paper, a time-variant modulus is used to calculate strains and displacements and compare them to the traditional approach for different speeds and bridge spans. The time-variant modulus is obtained from the strain rate of the structure which is used in turn to update the strain at each point in time. The results show significant changes in the modulus and in the resulting load effect as load magnitude and speed increase.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2012 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Bridge stiffness;CEB-FIP model code;Moving point force model||DOI:||10.1201/b12352-407||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Biondini, F. and Frangopol, D.M.
