IDENTIFICATION OF RAILWAY BRIDGES USING TRAFFIC-INDUCED VIBRATIONS

A program of full-scale bridge tests was undertaken as a principal part of the research project entitled Rehabilitation of Old Railway Bridges and primarily considered railway bridges located on the Turkish Railway Network. This program was financially supported by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Science for Stability Program. Bridges were tested during the summers of 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994. The test program followed a standard pattern for each bridge. An efficient damage detection procedure developed in the course of TU-BRIDGE research studies with application to the Cerkezkoy Railway Bridge is described.
