Comparative Analysis of Dynamic/Static Load Tests on Simple Supported Beam Bridge Based on Load Efficiency
Static load test is now recognized as a reliable bridge inspection method. However, this method has to interrupt transportation and consume manpower and material greatly. Firstly, this paper introduced the mathematic relation between static calibration coefficient and dynamic calibration coefficient, which are achieved by dynamic/static load tests with different load efficiencies—by comparing them, the proposed equation are verified. Quantitative assessment of bridge is achieved by combining dynamic load inspection method.
