Abstract: SUMMARY System identification was performed on the swing span of a steel truss bridge dating from 1896 using acceleration data collected from a wireless sensor network (WSN). The swing span can rotate 360° to allow river traffic to pass through the locks located under the bridge. The WSN installed on the swing span consists of 23 nodes that measure synchronized tri‐axial acceleration. Five days of measured data were segmented according to three functional positions of the span (locked facing downstream, locke…
