Abstract

An investigation into the dynamical behaviour of an inclined railway bridge traversed by uniform partially distributed moving railway vehicle, and supported by an elastic foundation is carried out. The effects of shear deformation and rotatory inertia are taken into consideration. The resulting coupled partially differential equations are solved using finite difference method. It was found that the foundation moduli and angle of inclination of the bridge have significant effect on the deflection of the bridge.
