When dealing with complex heritage structures such as Hammersmith Bridge, the age and structural form, together with any historical interventions over time, can make it challenging to perform an analysis that adequately replicates the actual structural behaviour and represents the current stressed state.
Rusi Rusev, Technical Director at Mott MacDonald in the UK, is sharing his experience in the analysis on the Hammersmith Bridge in London.
The topics covered during the presentation are as follows:
- Introduction of Hammersmith Bridge in London
- Permanent load effects derivation
- Testing, instrumentation and response calibration
