    Structural Damage Identification System Suitable for Old Arch Bridge in Rural Regions: Random Forest Approach

    Yu Zhang, Zhihua Xiong*, Zhuoxi Liang, Jiachen She, Chicheng Ma

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.1, pp. 447-469, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.022699

    Abstract A huge number of old arch bridges located in rural regions are at the peak of maintenance. The health monitoring technology of the long-span bridge is hardly applicable to the small-span bridge, owing to the absence of technical resources and sufficient funds in rural regions. There is an urgent need for an economical, fast, and accurate damage identification solution. The authors proposed a damage identification system of an old arch bridge implemented with a machine learning algorithm, which took the vehicle-induced response as the excitation. A damage index was defined based on wavelet packet theory, and a machine learning sample… More >

    Reinforcement Effect Evaluation on Dynamic Characteristics of an Arch Bridge Based on Vehicle-Bridge Coupled Vibration Analysis

    Yanbin Tan1, Xingwen He1,*, Lei Shi2, Shi Zheng3, Zhe Zhang1, Xinshan Wang2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.131, No.2, pp. 1041-1061, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.018543

    Abstract To numerically evaluate the reinforcement effect on dynamic characteristics of a concrete-filled steel tube arch bridge with vibration problems, a 12-degree-of-freedom sprung-mass dynamic vehicle model and a 3D finite element bridge model were established. Then, the coupled equations of vehicle-bridge interaction were derived and a computer program was developed using the FORTRAN language. This program can accurately simulate vehicle-bridge coupled vibration considering the bumping effect and road surface irregularity during motion of the vehicle. The simulated results were compared with those of relevant literatures to verify the correctness of the self-developed program. Then, three reinforcement schemes for the bridge (Addition… More >

    Dynamic Modeling and Analysis of Arch Bridges Using Beam-Arch Segment Assembly

    Wei-Xin Ren1,2,3, Cong-Cong Su1, Wang-Ji Yan1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 67-92, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2010.070.067

    Abstract A beam-arch segment assembly procedure is presented in this paper for the dynamic modelling and analysis of arch bridges. Such a beam-arch segment assembly is composed of different structural elements of arch bridges such as arch ribs (curved beams), suspenders, girders and floor beams. Based on the energy principle in structural dynamics, the stiffness matrix and mass matrix of such an assembly are formulated. The proposed procedure is then implemented to carry out the free vibration analysis of the Jian concrete filled tubular arch bridge. It is demonstrated that the proposed beam-arch segment assembly procedure is efficient with the advantages… More >
