Abstract

The dynamic behavior is a complicated characteristic in analysis of a railway bridge when it is incorporated with the effect of railway track. Even though it is not an ignorable component, the coupling effect with the railway track in the dynamic response of a railway bridge has been ignored or just simplified in the past researches. Therefore, this study conducts a numerical analysis of track effect on the railway bridge, and the comparison between the dynamic responses with three-dimensional (3D) discrete support track model and those without it is examined. Dynamic amplitude incorporated with 3D track model is decreased when the train velocity goes up over 250 km/h. This phenomenon shows that the resonance effect has been shifted by the 3D track model, which results in the changes in dynamic characteristics of a railway bridge. Consequently, the coupling effect between bridge and track should be taken account for in the analysis of dynamic response of a railway bridge.
