Abstract: This paper summarizes the latest approaches proposed on indirect bridge monitoring and provides recommendations for future development. The possibility of the estimation of bridge mode shapes from indirect measurements, is investigated. The Hilbert transform is applied to the responses measured from two following axles to extract the amplitudes of the signals. The global bridge mode shapes are constructed by applying a rescaling process to the local mode shapes obtained from the amplitudes. The performance of the proposed method is demonstrated using a numerical case study.
