Abstract
A method is presented for the use of dynamic response as an inspection and surveillance tool for the long term monitoring of concrete structures (mainly bridges) and for the analysis of these dynamic experimental data to ensure their correct use to this end. The method is based upon the definition of a finite element model for the structure, for the identification of stiffness characteristics (related to cracking) starting from modal dynamic parameters (natural frequencies and mode shapes) deriv...
