This thesis is part of a research project in the company of SP, Sweden to investigate the static and dynamic behaviors of Älvsbacka Timber Bridge that known as ‘a smart bridge’. In this context the investigation of project was carried out with simulations and experiments. The Simulation of the bridge was created by using the software program MULTIFRAME 4D®.The simulation analysis includes Finite Element Method, Modal Analysis, Static & Dynamic Force Analyzes. After all simulation analysis, in order to verify the results of the simulations, some experimental tests were performed at Älvsbacka Timber Bridge. The obtained real data which comes from the experimental tests were implemented by use MATLAB® software program. After all investigations, it was achieved as a conclusion of that the results of simulation and experiments showed a good correspondence.
