An element of vehicle-bridge coupling is established based on train-bridge interaction. A vehicle of train is modeled as an element possessing 4 axles and 10 degrees of freedom. Bridge is modeled as beam elements. Finite element formulas are educed from the equations of motion for whole train-bridge system. The random rail roughness samples are yielded using random numerical method and power spectral density function. Based on present method, a computing program is developed. As an example, the dynamic response and impact factors of a cable-stayed bridge are analysis with various damping parameters and various train speeds.
