The overarching aim of the research is to explore and establish the ability of large-amplitude, forced vibration testing to reveal the current performance and forecast the future system performance of bridges, with the consideration of dynamic soil-foundation-structure effects. With the ability to perform reliable, quantitative assessment of superstructure-substructure-foundation systems of aging bridges, owners will be provided with reuse and adaption options currently unavailable.
