Large-Amplitude Forced Vibration Testing for St-Id of Bridges and Foundation Reuse Assessment

The overarching aim of the research is to explore and establish the ability of large-amplitude, forced vibration testing to reveal the current performance and forecast the future system performance of bridges, with the consideration of dynamic soil-foundation-structure effects. With the ability to perform reliable, quantitative assessment of superstructure-substructure-foundation systems of aging bridges, owners will be provided with reuse and adaption options currently unavailable. Successful completion of the project will certainly draw attention of transportation agencies (bridge owners in particular) regarding the potential use of large mobile shakers in the global assessment, bridge adaption and reuse of bridge foundations. Results will be disseminated through presentations and publications at national and international conference proceedings, academic journals and research reports. Through the maintenance of close relations with professional organizations such as the ASCE and ISHMII, the research team expect further dissemination directly to infrastructure stakeholders through special workshops at various annual meetings and conferences.
