This Saturday, a very interesting bridge load testing was carried out in Irča vas. Load testing was performed with 18 vehicles weighing 3.9 tons, a total of 70 tons, which represents approximately 60% of the design bridge live load. Measurements of vertical displacements of the deck and horizontal displacements of abutments were measured with geodetic monitoring during the various placements of the vehicles on the bridge. Digital inclinometers were used to measure the rotation of the abutments. Two permanent measuring anchors with remote data reading are installed on each abutment, with which the forces in the measuring anchors were recorded. On the end dynamic load testing was carried out with measurements of bridge deck acceleration and damping.
