Artist Charles Gardent first sculpted the primary model in 1917. Mounted on the very pinnacle of the Manitoba Legislative Building in 1919, the distinguished statue carries a sheaf […]

A Study of Sources of Error in BWIM Systems using a Model Bridge

Bridge-weighing-in-motion (BWIM) uses dynamic responses of an instrumented bridge to estimate the weights of vehicles moving at normal speeds. Since working with actual bridges is relatively expensive, the intricacies of and the sources of error in a BWIM system are best explored through a scale lab model. This project describes the experimental investigation of BWIM […]
