Motion of Supports

Pp. 119-135 (17)

George T. Michaltsos and Ioannis G. Raftoyiannis


In this chapter, the special problem of support settlement is exclusively treated. The corresponding shape functions for settlement of one or more supports of simple beams with up to three spans with various boundary conditions are derived and presented in detail. Among the examined cases are supports vibrating along the longitudinal and the transverse of the bridge or the vertical direction as well.
