Modelling and Testing of the Daly’s ‘Shaky’ Bridge

This is a public lecture on the testing and modelling of Daly's (Shaky) Bridge organised jointly by Engineers Ireland and the Institution of Structural Engineers.

Daly’s Bridge is a historic steel suspension footbridge in Ireland, known locally as the ‘Shaky Bridge’ for its noticeable movement under pedestrian loading. Daly’s Bridge has been instrumented and tested recently for static and dynamic responses and a model of the bridge has been established in the process. The talk will focus on this modelling and testing. Video analysis and a new signal processing technique have been successfully applied to this bridge to identify its natural frequency. The study highlights the complexity and importance of full scale testing with good models and signal processing techniques for pedestrian bridge structures.
