A novel sandwich footbridge - Practical application of laminated composites in bridge design and in situ measurements of static response
A novel sandwich composite footbridge is presented in the paper, as an example of practical application of laminated composites in civil engineering. The in situ static load tests of the footbridge before its acceptation for exploitation are shown and discussed. The results are compared with the corresponding ones from a numerical equivalent single layer model of the sandwich structure created within the framework of finite element...
Modal properties identification of a novel sandwich footbridge – Comparison of measured dynamic response and FEA
A modern sandwich composite footbridge made of high-tech materials, being an example of practical application of laminated composites in civil engineering, is presented. The in situ non-destructive testing of the footbridge, aiming to identify modal properties and pedestrian comfort, is described. The measured eigenmodes and eigenfrequencies are compared with numerically estimated values. Finite element analyses of the footbridge...
Numerical modeling and experimental validation of full-scale segment to support design of novel GFRP footbridge
The paper contains analysis of full-scaled three meters long segment of a novel composite footbridge. Both numerical modeling and experimental validation were performed. Analyzed object is a shell type sandwich channel-like structure made of composite sandwich with GFRP laminates as a skin and PET foam as a core. Several static load schemes were performed including vertical and horizontal forces. In FEM analysis multilayered laminate...
