prefabricated assembled pedestrian cable-stayed bridge elastic connection stiffness vehicle load vibration comfort evaluation
To study the vibration responses of prefabricated assembled structures, the comfort of a prefabricated assembled pedestrian cable-stayed bridge was evaluated by limiting the acceleration behavior of the structure. The mode shapes and natural frequencies of the structure under ambient excitation were determined by installing acceleration sensors at the control points. According to the structural characteristics of the elastic connection of the bridge deck splicing, the stiffness of the elastic connection between adjacent segments was determined. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic load analysis models were established according to relevant guidelines. The peak acceleration and acceleration limit under pedestrian and vehicle traffic loads were compared, and the comfort degree of the pedestrian cable-stayed bridge was evaluated. The results show that the natural vibration frequency and peak acceleration match well with the measured values. Considering the reduction of the structural stiffness caused by the prefabricated assembly, the vibration characteristics of the prefabricated assembly structure can be truly reflected thereafter. The comfort evaluation index of the prefabricated assembly structure is consistent with that of the integral structure. The coupling effect between the pedestrian load and vehicle traffic load can be significantly ignored. The vehicle traffic load has a certain degree of influence on structural comfort.
