© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. The experimental and numerical response of crane bridges is studied in this work. To this end, an experimental campaign on a scale model of an overhead crane bridge was carried out on the shaking table of CEA/Saclay in France. A special similarity law has been used which preserves the ratios of seismic forces to friction forces and of seismic forces to gravity forces, without added masses. A numerical model, composed of beam elements, which takes into account non-linear effects, especially impact and friction, and simulates the earthquake response of the crane bridge, is presented. The comparison of experimental and analytical results gives an overall satisfactory agreement. Finally, a simplified model of the crane bridge, with only a few degrees of freedom is proposed.
