Study of Load Test of Pedestrian Suspension Bridge
This study focuses on test loading program and evaluation for pedestrian bridge. On the basis of the finite element analysis, numerical model of Lv River Bridge, which is a steel box pedestrian suspension bridge, is established. Moreover, field static load test is done and the results of tests are compared to the theoretical values. Results show that the measured result fits well with the theoretical result and bridge is in the situation of elastic deformation, and the strength and stiffness satisfy the need of design.
