CABLE-STAYED BRIDGE TESTING
“DerzhdorNDI” SE specialists performed dynamic and static tests of the cable-stayed bridge (Structire No.10) of the road across the Dnipro River in Zaporizhzhia.
The tests were performed by registration of the actual deflections of the bridge span structures under the loading and stress control of the metal in distinctive sections of the bridge span structure.
The loading on the bridge was performed by 30 trucks weighing at least 30 tons each, with their arrangement by 7 different schemes.
Subsequently, dynamic tests were performed for registration deformations during truck motion by the bridge.
According to preliminary test results, the results obtained do not exceed the estimated, which indicates the compliance of the bridge structure with the design loading.
After finalizing of all tests, a detailed report will be prepared with the final conclusions regarding loading-bearing capacity of the structure and the possibility of its operation start.
