The bridge foundations are constructed mainly below ground or water level. The rehabilitation of a foundation is difficult, and the results of evaluation of structural conditions are usually inaccurate. Furthermore, there are many cases that after natural disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons and floods, it is required to rapidly evaluate bridge substructure conditions for a judging decision on being able to open the bridge to traffic or not. Impact vibration test method has been developed to deal with such problems. Impact vibration test method is a non-destructive dynamic test method which allows to evaluate structural conditions of bridge substructures promptly with a good soundness. In this study, firstly, impact vibration test method, which is one of the utilizable non-destructive tests on the scouring of bridge substructure, is presented. Then, application of the test method for substructure evaluation of a bridge in Vietnam is introduced. The soundness and effectiveness of test method is also discussed.
