This book analyses the effects of moving loads on elastic and inelastic solids, elements and parts of structures and on elastic media, namely beams, continuous beams, beams on elastic foundations, rigid-plastic beams and thin-walled beams, frames, arches, strings, plates, elastic spaces and half spaces, etc. It provides theoretical formulations for the problems, and mathematical solutions for all cases and their application to civil, mechanical, transport, naval and aircraft structures. The extensive and up-to-date bibliography gives a worldwide survey.
