Since the 1980s in Europe high-speed rail has emerged rapidly as a means of transportation, and in the upcoming years many more tunnel, bridge and other infrastructure projects will be developed across the continent. At the same time design concepts and technologies have improved and innovative structural ideas have appeared, since trains travelling at high speed produce new and formerly unknown effects on structures such as bridges. Bridges for High-Speed Railways is a collection of papers from leading experts in this field. Issue addressed include: – Steel and composite bridges for high-speed railways; – European Standards for high-speed railway bridges; – Prestressed concrete high-speed railway bridges; – Bridge-vehicles dynamic interaction; – Seismic design of structures for high-speed railways; – Design; – Codes and dynamic analysis; – Construction, monitoring, maintenance and repair. Bridges for High-Speed Railways provides a valuable source of reference for bridge designers, consultants, infrastructure owners, regulatory authorities, construction companies, researchers, teachers and students involved in structural engineering projects for high-speed railways.

The construction of high-speed railways includes a wide variety of aspects, ranging from safety to new types of equipment and construction solutions. All these require state-of-art technologies, and in recent years design concepts for high-speed railways have improved. The focus in this volume is on the interaction between rail track and bridges. Track-bridge interaction sets a limit to the vibration and deformability of structures, so that accelerations, stresses and track deformations are controlled, circulation safety is satisfied, and design solutions for bridges are determined. Track-Bridge Interaction on High-Speed Railways presents the latest research on the interaction between rail track and bridges, and will be invaluable to civil engineers involved in the design, construction and maintenance of high-speed railways and bridges, and to researchers and graduate and undergraduate engineering students with an interest in this field.

The dynamic behaviour of bridges strongly affects the infrastructure system of high-speed railways, and is a crucial factor in safety issues and passenger comfort. Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges covers the latest research in this field, including: – Recently developed dynamic analysis techniques; – Train excitations; – Design issues for high-speed railway bridges – Fatigue conduct of viaducts and large span bridges; – Bridge dynamic behaviour; – Case studies. Dynamics of High-Speed Railway Bridges will be invaluable to professionals, scientists, public institutions and students involved in the design, construction and maintenance of high-speed railway bridges.
