Study on Box Girder Damage Identification of Cable-Stayed Bridges
A comparative study of the girder damage identification of Jintang Cable-stayed Bridge in Zhoushan Island-Land Project using the deflection index, the cable tension index, the beam bottom bending stress index, the modal curvature index and the modal flexibility matrix is introduced. By means of finite element method, a series of damage cases associated with the box girder are analyzed. The result shows that, for different damage types, the best effect of the girder damage identification is the modal curvature index, followed by the cable tension index, the beam bottom bending stress index is nearly of the same effect as the modal flexibility matrix index, and the worst is the deflection index.
