The cable–stayed bridges are usually built for long span and are subjected to dead and moving loads, seismic motions of supports to wind forces, temperature and many other forces. The dynamic study of the suspended and cable–stayed bridges was initiated by collapse of the well–known Tacoma Bridge in the USA. The paper deals with the vibration of suspended bridge subjected to the action of moving loads during the regular dynamic tests of the bridge and to point out on the discrepancy that may occur between finite element modelling (FEM) and on–site strain and displacements and acceleration amplitude measurements.
