As one of the most effective means to understand the real mechanical behavior and transmission mechanism of the structure, the bridge structure model test has been widely used in the academic and engineering fields. In this paper, the research progress of bridge model test in 2019 is summarized. The typical model test applications and the key scientific issues based on model test are reviewed from four aspects: static model test, fatigue model test, shaking table model test and hybrid test. In addition, this paper also summarized the new testing technology related to model test.Through the summary of this article, model test is an important method to investigate the safety, durability and suitability of bridge structures which use new design, new technology, and new material. And its also an effective method to evaluate the residual life or bearing capacity.The testing technology related to the development of model test mainly focus on measurement of strain, deflection, accelerated velocity, temperature, defect identification and so on.In the end of this paper, the development of bridge model test and new testing technology is prospected.
