A moving impulse load generated by a heavy cogwheel can be used as a testing excitation for bridges. This novel type of dynamic load acts along the entire driving path, its intensity is adjustable, and it can be very efficient in the case of resonance. Verification tests were performed on a model under laboratory conditions and compared to numerical simulation. The results are extensively discussed.
