SELECTIVE RANDOM DECREMENT TECHNIQUE FOR PROCESSING BRIDGE VIBRATION DATA

Long-term continuous, remote monitoring of bridges utilizing measured vibration response due to vehicular traffic is one of several nondestructive testing methods available to bridge engineers to obtain curtained data required to evaluate structural integrity of bridges. Effective use of this method depends on the capability of analytical methods to accurately estimate modal parameters. This paper presents one such method and illustrates its use utilizing data obtained from remote bridge monitoring systems installed on a bridge in New York State.
