AbstractRecords of vibrations induced by traffic on the new MacDonald-Cartier Bridge, crossing the Ottawa River joining the cities of Ottawa and Hull, were obtained before the final road surface was in place. The measurements showed that, apart from the point of impact of moving vehicles, the vibrational stresses induced in the bridge were probably no greater than 250 psi. When the final bituminous surface was in place the cause of the impacts was eliminated and the vibrations due to road traffic were significantly reduced.
