Vortrag Dr. Krzysztof Zoltowski, Piotr Zoltowski (Gdansk University of Technology)Dynamic analysis of pedestrian bridges with FEM and CFDAbstract:The paper describes a numerical study of dynamic response of a footbridge under pedestrian load and flow field created by big truck passing underneath. Standard FEM formulation is used to compute the response of the structure but the main problem discussed is how to define loads. Pedestrian load function is described in the first part of the paper. Lock in effect (interaction between pedestrians and the deck) for vertical vibrations is explained and the proposition of simple nonlinear dynamic model is presented.Sie finden diesen Vortrag auf unserem ftp-server im geschützten Downloadbereich (Login/Password erforderlich)
