Field Study On Moving Force Identification
Chan, Tommy H.T., Yung, T.H., & Law, S.S. (2001) Field Study On Moving Force Identification. In Health Monitoring and Management of Civil Infrastructure Systems, 4-March 2001, Newport Beach.
A field measurement to validate a moving force identification method was carried out on an existing prestressed concrete highway bridge with a span length of 28 m. The test bridge is located at Ma Tau Wai, Kowloon, Hong Kong. A heavy 2-axle truck with known axle loads was used as a control vehicle. Besides the control vehicle, axle load data of in-service vehicles were also collected. The bridge responses acquired for the identification were indirectly measured using strain gauges. Results show that dynamic axle loads induced from both control and in-service vehicles can be identified indicating the method is valid for identification of moving forces.
