In the experiment, a scaled vehicle model crosses a steel girder which has been adopted as the bridge model. The bridge model also includes a scaled road surface profile. The effects of varying vehicle model mass and speed are investigated. The damping of the girder is also varied. The bridge frequency and changes in damping are detected in the vehicle acceleration response in the presence of a rough road surface profile.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Bridge dynamics||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||23rd KKCNN Symposium on Civil Engineering, Taipei, November 13-15, 2010|
