Dynamic Assessment of the Iron Bridge at Paderno d’Adda (1889)
The paper presents the experimental modal analysis recently carried out on the historic iron bridge at Paderno d’Adda (1889). The dynamic tests were performed in operational conditions (i.e. under traffic and wind-induced excitation) between June and October 2009 and different output-only identification techniques were used to extract the modal parameters from ambient vibration data. The described tests represent the first experimental investigation carried out on the global characteristics of the bridge, since the load reception tests of 1889 and 1892.
