Moving Load. In order to simulate the movement of vehicle load, the secondary development of DLOAD subroutine was carried out based on FE software, ABAQUS, to simulate the random nonuniform moving load.
With the rapid development of urbanization and modern industry, ground vibration caused by moving load is becoming more and more frequent and it has become public considerable attention and engineering concern [1].
The problem of track dynamic response under moving load is the subject of many theoretical and experimental investigations.
Also, for a VLFS to be used as an airport or bridge, time-varying moving loads must be considered, for example, the analysis of the displacement and bending moment of a very large floating bridge in calm water with some moving point masses [1,2] or the displacement response of a VLFS in waves with a moving load point [3,4].
In the present paper, attention is focused on the effect of the mass of a moving load of constant magnitude and velocity on the dynamic response of a finite prismatic double-beam system interconnected by a core.
[2], along with their presentation of measurements, presented the development of an FEM model composed of a moving load on a railway/embankment structure, which was coupled to a layered ground model at a series of points via the Green's functions.
The dynamic response characteristics of beams resulting from the passage of different moving load systems, and with the existence of dampers and oscillators, have been studied within many applications.
Out-of-plane responses of a circular curved Timoshenko beam due to a moving load, International Journal of Solids and Structures 40: 7425-7448.
The vibration of curved-in-plane beams under a moving load is the subject of papers by Yang et al.
Gerald Potts of Test Measurement Systems will present, "The tire as a vehicle component." Today's pneumatic tire is said to serve four functions, including supporting a moving load, generating steering forces, generating driving and braking forces, and providing isolation from road irregularities.
Over the past four years, many old and inadequate bridges in Michigan have been replaced with well-built, modern structures, capable of carrying a moving load of 18 tons.
