Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Engineering in Natural Hazards Mitigation


A system identification study was performed using a computer finite element bridge model and measured static and dynamic response data obtained from full-scale quick-release ram field tests at the Meloland Road Overcrossing MRO in southern California. A comparison of the optimized values is presented with those of several other researchers.
