In this preliminary study , the effects of moving loads as well as wind loads on
dynamic response of a typical cable - stayed bridge will be studied . The
overturning effects of wind on the stability of vehicles and the possibility of their
slippage will ...
Thus it is of importance that the total effect exerted by heavy traffic flow is suitably
modeled and analysed . Codes for the design and assessment of bridges provide
traffic load models that give conservative traffic load effects . These notional ...
In structural analysis , the effect of external tendons cutting was considered by ...
To investigate the retrofit effects by external tendons , external tendons on both
sides of five girders were cut successively using oxyacetylene cutter . At the time
