Rapid progresses have been made in design and erection technologies of concrete-filled steel tubular arch bridge in recent years. However, the research on dynamic properties of this type of bridge is far from mature. Generally, the dynamic properties are analyzed using numerical models. This paper presents the results of experimental study on dynamic properties of a concrete-filled steel tubular arch bridge. The dynamic testing of the bridge is performed by collecting acceleration responses stimulated by natural excitation. The sensor placement, the signal acquisition and measurement setups are given in detail. Dynamic properties, including modal frequencies and mode shapes of low-order modes, are identified from the ambient responses using frequency domain decomposition method. The identified modal properties could be used as initial state parameters in model updating, structural health monitoring or safety evaluation.
