Paper Title:
Integrity Strain Response Analysis of a Long Span Cable-Stayed Bridge
  Abstract

This paper presents the analysis of strain time histories measured by structural health monitoring system. The main objective of this study is to prepare data for reliability estimation of main components as well as the entire structural system. The strain and corresponding temperature data is collected at the following stages: closure segment reconstruction stage and operating stage. The strain monitoring of the closure segment during the reconstruction stage provided valuable information on early-life strain development and reference characteristics for events such as post tensioning and temperature change. These lessons learnt from the reconstruction monitoring can be used for understanding subsequent bridge behavior, including damage detection and reference points of subsequent monitoring. Specially, the loading test results reveal the effectiveness and correctness of the strain acquiring system and provide evidence for reliable long-tem monitoring. Strain and temperature data have been recorded at sampling frequency of 62.5Hz since loading test, which would provide information linear stress-strain relationships. The long-term creep and shrinkage model were provided by Code for Design of Highway Reinforced Concrete and Prestressed Concrete Bridge and Culverts (JTG D62-2004). Through the statistical analysis of the online strain response, the probability model of long-term performance under environmental and random traffic loading are obtained which gives the potential of its application of reliability based assessment on cable stayed bridges where they evaluated the reliability of elements such as cables and stiffening girder.
