Deck modeling of bridges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello friends,

I'd like to know how to model the behavior of a deck when making a dynamic analysis of a bridge. I use SAP2000 and I assigned constraints to all the points that belong to the deck, but I guess it's not a good idea to do that, because it doesn't represent the real behavior of the deck when subjected to lateral forces. Please send any help. Thanks a lot.
