Field tests for condition assessment and moving force identification on a skew bridge

Yu, Ling, Chan, Tommy H.T., & Ashebo, Demeke B. (2005) Field tests for condition assessment and moving force identification on a skew bridge. In Hao, H., Deeks, A., & Xia, Y. (Eds.) 1st International Conference on Structural Condition Assessment, Monitoring and Improvement, 12 - 14 December 2005, Perth, Western Australia.


Field tests are still one of the most important and practical methods for bridge assessment and for better understanding on bridge behaviour so far. This paper reports some preliminary results on a series of field tests that had been carried out on the Tsing-Yi South Bridge (N797) in New Territories West of Hong Kong in the April 2005. After the tested skew bridge is briefly introduced, the experimental modal analyses on the skew bridge and the hired vehicle, the corresponding calibration test of tested bridge, the subsequent moving force identification tests, and other dynamic tests are described. Some experimental results from the mentioned tests are then analyzed and discussed. In addition, some useful data were extracted from the developed data base and provided for the subsequent moving force identification, impact factor study and bridge condition assessment. The results will also be discussed.

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.
