An extensive review and evaluation of the optimal models to asses the dynamic effects of moving vehicle on a bridge is performed. These models, with increasing grades of complexity, represent the best approximation of the problem under certain assumptions. Case studies are also performed with these models. In addition to the dynamic analyses, which allow evaluations of the problem and gives valuable hints on the optimal design of bridges subjected to moving vehicles, vibration control devices such Tuned Mass Dampers (TMD) and Multiple Tuned Mass Damper (MTMD) are presented. Results from different authors are included, which allow assessing the applicability and effectiveness of these methods.
