Speaker: Prof.ssa Stana Živanović (University of Warwick – School of Engineering)

This talk aims to provide insight into dynamic performance of FRP footbridges tested over the past two years. Dynamic properties will be presented first and compared against the dynamics of structures made of more traditional construction materials, such as steel and concrete. This will be followed by examples of evaluation of the vibration serviceability limit state under (mainly human induced) dynamic loading and confirmation (or dispute) of some presumptions about ability of these light‐weight structures to perform well under dynamic actions.
