Abstract [en]

In this paper, a bi-directional multi-passive tuned mass damper is presented. The applicationfor the damper is on vertical hangers of an existing steel arch railway bridge.The hangers have been found susceptible to resonance and the resulting stressesresults in a reduced service life due to fatigue. Due to different boundaryconditions, the natural frequencies of the hangers are different in thelongitudinal and the transverse direction. In addition, the natural frequenciesincrease during train passage, due to increased tensile force in the hangers. Aprototype of the damper has been developed, consisting of two suspended massescoupled in series. Different lateral suspensions are used to obtain differentnatural frequencies in the longitudinal and the transverse direction. One massis tuned to the conditions of the fully loaded bridge and the other mass to theunloaded bridge. The performance of the damper is verified using controlledloading under laboratory conditions and the results are compared with a finiteelement model. The damper is shown to perform as expected and the motion of thetwo masses is near uncoupled. Finally, the performance of the damper isverified by in-situ testing on the case study bridge.
