Study on Dynamic Response Test of Long Span PC Girder Bridge under the Operating Conditions


Article Preview

In this paper, based on the Guangzhou Pazhou Bridge ,the acceleration and dynamic deflection was tested synchronously under normal operating conditions. Power spectral density analysis of the measured signal was done with frequency domain analysis methods.The measured value was compared with the finite element calculated value.The studies are as follows: first, the acceleration and deflection power spectral density function shows a multimodal distribution;the vibration frequency is concentrated in the low frequency range;the bridge vibration energy is concentrated in the first three frequency.Second, the actual operating conditions of Pazhou Bridge is good and it has a good bearing capacity. Third,the bridge impact coefficient measured maximum value is much greater than the national specification values.The researchs can provide the basic data for study on bridge health monitoring system development and bridge vibration signal separation technique.
