## Vibration of Solids and Structures Under Moving LoadsThis text analyzes the effects of moving loads on elastic and inelastic solids, elements and parts of structures, and on elastic media, namely beams, continuous beams, beams on elastic foundations, rigid-plastic beams and thin-walled beams, frames, arches, strings, plates elastic spaces, and half spaces. Vibrations in these structures are produced by various types of moving force (loads), such as vehicles with the inertial effects of their masses and by random loads which move with constant or variable speeds along the structure. This type of loading (varying in time and space) may be found in transport engineering structures which need to carry faster and heavier vehicles while the structures over which the vehicles move are becoming slenderer and lighter. |
