Structural Assessment of the Hammersmith Bridge in London

Integration of Testing and Analysis

When dealing with complex heritage structures such as Hammersmith Bridge, the age and structural form, together with any historical interventions over time, can make it challenging to perform an analysis that adequately replicates the actual structural behaviour and represents the current stressed state.

The numerical analysis of Hammersmith Bridge has effectively integrated the field gathered data to capture the current stressed state and condition of the structure within the analytical model, whilst enabling calibration against the measured response.

Drawing on a broad range of site testing and measurement techniques and combining with various analytical approaches and theoretical principles, data could be cross-referenced and interpreted with improved reliability.

This method has been essential in developing a representative and calibrated analytical model to successfully deliver the detailed assessment and feasibility design for strengthening, increasing confidence in the results and reducing conservatism in the findings.
