Detailed Design of a Railroad Bridge (Classic Reprint): William Hubert Burr
This book intends to investigate the effects of utilizing tuned mass dampers in mitigating the dynamic response of suspension bridge towers subjected to seismic actions. For this purpose Izmit Bay Suspension Bridge tower, which is located in Izmit Bay, is chosen as the case study bridge. Main span length of the bridge is 1550 meters and the two side spans are 550 meters each. Dynamic response of the Izmit Bay Bridge Tower structure is investigated considering two models: (1) with mass damper and (2) without mass damper to be able to estimate the impact of utilization of mass damper on the seismic response. For this purpose, member-based detailed three-dimensional simplified models of the tower are developed in CSI SAP2000 analysis software. Exact tower cross section is created in the analysis software, and for each section of Izmit Bay Bridge tower is reflected to the model with considering as-built geometry of erected tower. Additionally, loads acting on the tower that are coming from the deck and the cable are applied to the model. Also tuned mass damper (TMD) dynamic characteristics are defined according to actual masses of the existing dampers of the Izmit Bay Bridge Tower.

The influence on the interplay of technical progress, imagination and functional variety in footbridges are different from those affecting large-scale bridges. This fact has resulted in an exhaustible variety of distinctive design, as is beautifully illustrated by the selection of footbridges shown in this book. Essays clearly explain the technical aspects and the aesthetic potential of different structure designs. Footbridges contains detailed presentations of 90 european bridges, with text, comprehensive and detail plans, and photographs taken especially for the volume. With projects by Arup, Jürg Conzett, Foster and Partners, Happold, Schlaich Bergermann and Partners, Wilkinson Eyre, Jiri Strasky and others. The examples are organized chronologically in thematically focused chapters: lightweight bridges, moving bridges, covered bridges, taut-ribbon suspension bridges, arch bridges, etc. For those whose curiosity is aroused by the insight given into this type of bridge building, a compilation of 120 more footbridges, listed by location, provide a starting point for further investigation. Ursula Baus is an independent architecture critic and the author of numerous books and technical articles. She teaches at Stuttgart University. Mike Schlaich is a professor of massive construction at the Technische Universität (Technical University) in Berlin and a partner of the firm Schlaich Bergermann and Partners. Wilfried Dechau is a photographer â?? he lives and works in Stuttgart and specializes in architecture, bridges, and portraits. Das Zusammenspiel von technischem Fortschritt, Phantasie und Funktionsvielfalt bei Fußgängerbrücken - im Vergleich zum Großbrückenbau - anderen Impulsen, die eine unerschöpfliche Vielfalt unverwechselbarer Beispiele bescheren. Die für dieses Buch ausgewählten, ausführlich dokumentierten Fußgängerbrücken aus Europa zeigen dies anschaulich. Textbeiträge machen technische Zusammenhänge verständlich und das gestalterische Potenzial des Tragwerkentwurfs nachvollziehbar. Fussgängerbrücken stellt90 ausgewählte Brücken ausführlich mit Text, Gesamt- und Detailplänen und eigens aufgenommenen aktuellen Fotografien vor.
