Abstract:

The concept of vehicle-bridge interaction (VBI) was originally developed to investigate the dynamic behavior of bridges subjected to moving loads such as high-speed trains. In recent years, the VBI system was introduced to further explore the possibility of identifying bridge frequencies in order to monitor the health of bridges via the use of passing vehicles. Among the models of test vehicles, the sprung mass vehicle model with a single-degree-of-freedom vehicle body is the most common adopted one due to its simplicity. Nevertheless, for a test vehicle moving over the uneven pavement, the pitching effect arising from the vertical and rotational movements of the vehicle actually influences the identification of bridge frequencies. As such, a rigid-mass vehicle model is proposed in this work to improve the sprung mass vehicle model by including both vertical and rotational deflections. The analytical solutions to the rigid-mass VBI system are derived to verify the proposed model, and the numerical examples are provided to investigate the dynamic behavior of the VBI system subjected to road irregularity.
