Title: Experimental and Numerical Assessment of the Dynamic Behaviour of a Stress-Ribbon Bridge
Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: This paper describes the experimental and numerical study of the dynamic behaviour of a stress-ribbon footbridgeconstructed at the campus of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, Portugal. This bridge has notdisplayed any vibration problem, as yet, but significant levels of vertical oscillation have been observed underpedestrian use. Therefore, a site observation programme was developed in order to assess the main dynamiccharacteristics and levels of vibration of the bridge, to compare them with limit values recommended by structuralcodes, and to validate a numerical model to be used in predicting the bridge response under extreme loadings.
