Abstract [en]

Resonance vibration of railway bridges has become an important design issue during the last decade due to the development of new high-speed lines. At resonance it is well known that the damping of the structure has a great influence on the final response. The current paper presents modal parameters, such as modal damping ratios and natural frequencies, derived based on a simply supported Bernoulli-Euler beam on an elastic half-space. In the current chapters of Eurocode dealing with dynamical analysis of railway bridges, the expression for the modal damping ratio is essentially empirical. The novelty of this paper is therefore two-fold: (1) provide modal damping ratios for soil-structure interaction, and (2) show that the damping should not be considered as constant for all modes but it varies depending on the particular mode shape and interaction with the soil.
