Paper Title:
A Method for Determining the Springing Displacements of Arch Bridges without Technical Data
  Abstract

A method for determining the springing displacements and arch axis of old arch bridges without technical data is presented. By minimizing the difference between the arch axis predicted by the finite element model and the one obtained by assumed arch equation, the optimization problem is formulated and solved. Two numerical examples are given and the results are discussed.
