Abstract

In this contribution, a new method for a deflection shape determination of an infinite beam on a visco-elastic foundation traversed by uniformly moving mass is presented. The method invokes the dynamic stiffness matrix concept and for the sake of simplicity the results are shown on Euler-Bernoulli beams. The solution is presented in the context of a review of some methods for solution of uniformly moving mass and load problems on finite and infinite beams. Advantages and disadvantages of these methods are summarized.
