The aim of this paper is to verify the dynamics stability of the continuous PSC Box bridges on the high-speed Kyoung-bu railway when a high-sped train runs through it. An experimental study was carried out to investigate the dynamic behaviors of the PSC Box railway bridge, which had ben designed based on dynamic design criteria. As a result, it was determined that PSC Box railway bridges possess enough dynamics stability for use by high-speed trains. According to the result of a field test (dynamics measuring analysis) that was conducted, an application of the natural frequency of train speed and the adjustment of the bridge's span length will allow one to come up with a more economical and suitable bridge design. Furthermore, it was found that the continuous control of the bridge's dynamic behavior and the bridge's maintena nce require the recording of data. The results of this study are very important in evaluating the structural stability of high-speed line bridges.
