The WIM+RESPONSE system can acquire and store simultaneous truck weight plus response data from any combination of simple and/or continuous spans with a total bridge length of feet.

For example, weight and response data can be obtained from one span while additional response data is obtained from another by: 1. Bridge Weigh-in-Motion (B-WIM) is the concept of using measured response on a bridge to calculate the static weights of passing traffic loads as they pass overhead at full highway speed.

FIELD STUDY BRIDGES Bridge Selection Criteria Description and Instrumentation EB. Bridge Weigh-in-Motion (B-WIM) is a method of using instrumented bridges to weigh passing heavy vehicles.

Accurate vehicle velocity and axle spacing determination are crucial for accuracy of weighing results. The paper explains the basic B-WIM principles including the different methods of.

This paper develops a Bridge Weigh-in-Motion (B-WIM) system based on the acceleration response of the bridge. The objective is not to measure vehicle weights but to use the mean calculated weights Author: Arturo Gonzalez.

This study addresses the feasibility of using a single-span bridge as a weigh-in-motion (WIM) tool to quantify the gross vehicle weights (GVWs) of trucks inexpensively with a small number of sensors and without using axle detectors.

1 Introduction Fatigue and fracture phenomena represent very important failure modes in railway bridges since such structures experience a very high number of stress cycles during their service life.

Field testing was performed on an interstate without any lane closures. Four preweighed trucks with different axle configurations traveled over a bridge at three different speeds and in two separate lanes.

Measured strain data were used to implement bridge weigh-in-motion (B-WIM) algorithms and calculate the corresponding velocities and GVWs.

1. Introduction. Weigh-in-motion (WIM) technology is one of the main tools for pavement management. It can provide an accurate description of the traffic on road network recording class of vehicles (trucks, cars and motorcycles by the weight, number of axle, distance of axle and size), total gross weight and axle weight (sometimes, weight per wheel), speed, Cited by: 2.

B-WIM or bridge weigh-in-motion is the process of converting an instrumented bridge into a scale for weighing passing vehicles. B-WIM for railway traffic is a subject which has been much less thoroughly studied than B-WIM for road by:   Bridge weigh in motion (B-WIM) uses accurate sensing systems to transform an existing bridge into a mechanism to determine actual traffic loading.

This information on traffic loading can enable efficient and economical management of transport networks and is becoming a valuable tool for bridge safety assessment.

B-WIM can provide site-specific traffic loading on deteriorating bridges Cited by:   The Trezói Bridge is located in the international “Beira Alta” route that links Portugal to Spain, at the km 62 north of Mortágua in the village of bridge was constructed as part of a project to replace existing bridges in the “Beira Alta” route, carried out during the decade of 50, and was opened to traffic in August Cited by: 8.
