Abstract

The objective of this work was to develop a low-cost portable damage detection tool to assess and predict damage areas in highway bridges. The proposed tool was based on standard vibration-based damage identification (VBDI) techniques but was extended to a new approach based on operational traffic load. The methodology was tested using numerical simulations, laboratory experiments, and field testing.
