Abstract

In this paper, we used differential transform method (DTM) to analyse free vibration of a railway bridge, modelled as an orthotropic rectangular plate, supported by Pasternak foundation. The effect of damping was considered. The present method transformed the governing equation to its algebraic form. Solution form to similar equation was adopted. The results obtained are in agreement with the ones in literature, and it shows that the technique introduced is easy to apply to such differential equation governing the vibration of such plates.
