Beam based finite element modelling of Herøysund bridge
AuthorBerg, Patrick Norheim
In this thesis the candidate aims to model two finite elements models of the post tensioned concrete Herøysund bridge. First a solid element model is modelled using the documentation from the bridge construction, then a beam element model is modelled using the solid model as a foundation. These models are subjected to a structural analysis that applies boundary conditions, joints, mass, gravity, asphalt, railings, and the post tensioning system. Then the structural analysis is used as a pre-stress condition for a modal analysis on each model. The modal analysis is used to find the eigenfrequencies and corresponding mode shapes of the bridge models. Interesting results from both models’ analyses is compared to reveal how similar the models are and which model gives the most reliable results. The modes are compared using the modal assurance criterion. The modes are then evaluated, and significant modes are suggested for comparison with operational modes that will be extracted from the bridge in the future.

Engineering methods for enhancing railway geometry and winter road assessment: A safety and maintenance perspective Brustad, Tanita Fossli (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-06-22)In many areas around the world there are limited transportation possibilities when travelling between key cities. If these areas also experience demanding weather conditions or geography, getting from A to B, during difficult conditions, is usually not optimal in regards to accessibility, safety, and comfort. Under challenging conditions, two essential elements in strengthening accessibility, safety, ...
