Abstract

This paper takes the Tsing Ma Bridge in Hong Kong as an example to manifest how the structural health monitoring system (SHMS) installed in the bridge has been utilized since 1997. The SHMS installed in the Tsing Ma Bridge is briefly introduced first. How to use the SHMS for investigating highway loading, railway loading, wind characteristics, and temperature effects is then presented. Identification of time varying natural frequencies and modal damping ratio of the bridge under strong winds in terms of the SHMS is also demonstrated. Toward the performance assessment and damage detection of the bridge, SHMS-based computer simulation and damage assessment are discussed. The establishment of SHMS-based bridge rating system is finally commented as an on-going research work.
