Measurement of deflections of railway bridges when they are crossed by trains is important for the design and evaluation of their structural health. In this paper are presented the results of RTS monitoring of the Gorgopotamos Railway bridge in central Greece, a bridge >100 years old with several openings of ~30m. This bridge was partly destroyed and rebuilt twice, and its dynamic behavior is practically unknown.Our study focused on the apparent vertical displacements of a reflector set at the… CONTINUE READING
