EACS 2016 paper - HIL model and cable stayed footbridge monitoring/control

EACS 2016 Paper No. 140

Elaborations from an experimental campaign on a footbridge are re-elaborated. After the parameters of a consistent numerical model have been calibrated, recorded signals and numerical analyses are exploited in view of improving the structural monitoring features adopted up to now. The transient character of human crossing is demanded to a further suitable numerical model. As an ultimate target of the investigation, the potential of simple structural control schemes on the cable tension is discussed.
