Time History Calculation with RF-/DYNAM Pro - Walking and Running over a Footbridge

Online presentation


Duration: 1:03:14

  • Features of the RF-DYNAM Pro Module
  • Time course analysis, natural frequencies and mode shapes
  • Theory of walking and running (formulas according to Prof. Bachmann)
  • Example in RFEM: Load cases with RF-MOVE Surfaces


  • until approx. 06:00: Overview of RF-/DYNAM Pro Modules
  • until about 09:30: Features of the add-on module RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations
  • until about 16:00: Determination of natural frequencies of a pedestrian bridge
  • until about 22:00: Theory for walking (formulas according to Prof. Bachmann) and notes on the time history method
  • until approx. 28:00: Creation of load cases in RF-MOVE Surfaces
  • until about 45:00: Input of time diagrams by means of direct function input, definition of dynamic load cases
  • until 53:00: Evaluation of Results
  • until approx. 59:00: Comparison calculation with the simplified consideration of walking (no local change)
  • until approx. 62:00: Theory of Running (formulas according to Prof. Bachmann)
