Title: Evaluation of dynamic properties of the Infante Dom Henrique Bridge
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: The Douro valley at Porto is crossed by several outstanding bridges linking thecities of Porto and Gaia, like the centenary metallic Maria Pia and Luiz I Bridges or the concreteArrábida and S. João Bridges. Recently, a new crossing was constructed and open to road trafficin the vicinity of these well-known bridges: the Infante D. Henrique Bridge. The evaluation ofthe most relevant dynamic properties of the bridge, after completion, was developed by theLaboratory of Vibrations and Monitoring of FEUP, using both experimental and numericaltools. This study allowed to achieve an experimentally validated finite element model of thebridge, which may constitute a baseline model for future damage detection studies. In this context,the present paper describes the main features of the developed work and presents the obtainedresults, stressing the excellent correlation achieved between measured and calculated dynamicproperties.
