Abstract: This paper discusses the dynamic response of a curved bridge deck to a moving vehicle. The bridge deck is idealized as a set of annular sector plates and circular rings rigidly jointed together. On the basis of classical plate and ring theories a method has been developed to obtain the response to a moving vehicle idealized as a spring mass system. After obtaining the normal modes and frequencies and establishing the orthogonality conditions, the problem of the forced motion of the deck is solved by the method of spectral representation. Numerical results have been presented to illustrate the effect of several vehicle and bridge parameters on the response. Copyright 1977 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd
