Structural Dynamics

ABES engineers have been involved in numerous successful projects in the field of structural dynamics. These projects necessitated the use of advanced computer software, the acquisition of field measurements and the development of new analytical tools. The combination of sophisticated methods on the one hand, and practical engineering know-how on the other has led to novel solutions in numerous instances.

Earthquake Engineering show/hide

ABES provides seismic design and consulting for our in-house projects, and for other design offices, for large structures, residential and commercial projects, transportation and utility infrastructures etc. Services in the field of earthquake engineering include response spectrum analyses of structures, time-history simulations of earthquake events, consideration of non-linear material properties and geometric non-linearities, displacement base design – all in accordance with the latest seismic codes. Our expertise also covers the seismic evaluation of existing structures, earthquake damage assessment and the preparation of retrofit and upgrade solutions.

High-Speed Railway Bridges show/hide

The dynamic response of bridges and culverts to the loading of passing high-speed trains is an interesting topic which has received notable attention by ABES project engineers during past years. Dynamic analyses and checks of newly designed bridges according to various code regulations have been performed. Train-structure interaction was investigated. Rehabilitation options for existing structures on railway lines which due to be upgraded were provided. Field measurements were used in many instances to calibrate and verify numerical results.

Wind Dynamics show/hide

ABES engineers have been involved in the buffeting analysis of various long-span bridges. Moreover, our specialists have also developed computer programs for the numerical determination of aero-dynamic and aero-elastic properties of bridge girder cross-sections and have been actively involved in wind tunnel testing. ABES offers comprehensive services with regards to aero-elastic analysis, wind tunnel testing and design-optimisation with regards to aero-dynamic properties of structures.

Pedestrian and Light-Weight Bridges show/hide

Pedestrian bridges and similar light-weight spans are notorious for their sensitivity to certain types of excitations. ABES engineers have ample experience in the dynamic evaluation of such structures and in the design of viscous and tuned mass dampers to control these effects.
