Determination of Moving Tank and Missile ImpactForces on a Bridge Structure
A method to determine the moving tank and missile impact forces on a bridge is developed. The presentmethod is an online adaptive recursive inverse algorithm, which is composed of the Kalman filter and therecursive least square estimator (RLSE), to estimate the force inputs on the bridge structure. The state equationsof the bridge structure were constructed by using the model superposition and orthogonal technique. Byadopting this inverse method, the moving tank and missile impact force inputs acting on the bridge structuresystem can be estimated from the measured dynamic responses. Besides, this work presents an efficientweighting factor applied in the RLSE, which is capable of providing a reasonable estimation results. The resultsobtained from the simulations show that the method is effective in determining the moving tank and missileimpact forces, so that the acceptable results can be obtained.
