Research on Temperature Influences in Cable-Stayed Bridges’ Health Monitoring
The health monitoring for long-span bridges has become a hotspot in civil engineering. However, because of the complexity and particularity in bridge structure, monitoring variables are greatly influenced by environmental factors, which results in more difficulties in evaluation. The paper analyzes structural responses in different temperature fields, and the results show that effect of temperature difference among members and temperature gradient are remarkable on structures. The results may be of reference for formulation of bridge health monitoring strategies.
