Practical example of signal processing from strain gauge, inductive transducer and total station measurements are used to illustrate the features of the bridge load testing measurements. FFT provides accurate representation of physical behavior for static and dynamic signals obtained when loading the bridge. As a reference measurement the signal from inductive transducer was taken. A static part of the load test was also geodetically measured and theoretically calculated. The results are comparable.
