 Summary:
 This paper presents brief dynamic analysis of one typical steel bridge orthotropic plate. Geometry and load data are adopted according to recommendations from the literature. Calculation is preformed using the Finite element method where the commercial software package Abaqus is used. Dynamic load due to vehicle crossing is modeled via six weighted rigid plates with dimensions equal to the contact surface between the wheel and the plate. Obtained results suggest that the main impact on the structural response comes from the speed of the vehicle. Influence of the crossing of the second vehicle was negligible in presented analysis.
