  • TITLE: A New Type of Bridge, Mobilebridge® to Super-Quickly Recover a Bridge

    AUTHORS: Ichiro Ario, Yuki Chikahiro

    KEYWORDS: Mobilebridge?, Scissors Type of Emergency Bridge, Deplyable Bridge, Vehicle Loadings

    JOURNAL NAME: World Journal of Engineering and Technology, Vol.3 No.3C, October 22, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Many natural disasters cause not only critical situations for facilities and resident’s residents’ life, but also significant damage to economy. It is obvious that quick rescue action must be undertaken and that there are many problems due to the occurrence of secondary disasters at rescue worksite. Basing Based on the previous study of deployable structures and the concept of the multi-folding micro-structures, we propose a new type of foldable bridge in form of scissor structure called the Mobile-bridge?. In this paper, we discuss the vehicle passing test performed on the real-scale Mobile-bridge in order to evaluate its mechanical characteristics and application limits. Moreover, we verified the compatibility between the result of calculations and experiments by means of theoretical modelling. The results show that it is sufficient to treat the load as equivalent nodal forces applied at the joints without including the stiffness of the deck.
