In this paper the numerical models are established for deterministic and stochastic dynamic analysis of bridges under traffic flows. Road surfaces can be taken into account in analysis. The time-histories of bridges under vehicles can be computed and the design parameters of bridges under traffic flows can be also analyzed. Different types of vehicles and traffic flows can be considered.
