Recent Advances in Moving Force Identification

Chan, Tommy H.T. (2007) Recent Advances in Moving Force Identification. In Yang, Y.B. & Yau, J.D. (Eds.) 3rd International Symposium on Environmental Vibrations: Prediction, Monitoring, Mitigation and Evaluation (ISEV2007), 28-30 Nov, Taipei.


Identification of moving loads on bridges is an important inverse problem in the civil and structural engineering field, which can provide a better understanding about the dynamic loadings on bridges. The study on identification of moving loads has made a big progress over the past years. This paper first gives a review on various methods for moving force identification. It then goes on to discuss its recent advances by describing how these methods could be improved by using some mathematical tools. A field study adopting the improved system is then described and some observations of the field study are summarized at the end.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
