Safe and cost-effective operation of bridges is a key in today’s infrastructure market. With SENSFIB BRIDGE the operator gains valuable knowledge of structural conditions. This supports maintenance planning, life extension decisions and eases the inspection work load. SENSFIB BRIDGE provides real-time data for operative decisions and the saving of life-time structural loads including the environmental parameters for post-processing.
SENSFIB BRIDGE monitors the stress responses and accelerations of the structure during operation to provide online information about load margins and long-term information about fatigue accumulation.The scope and layout of the system can be adapted to fit any bridge at any geographical location.
Wind, waves, current and temperature are typical natural load parameters to measure together with structural response as bending, accelerations, tension and torsion.
The collected information can be utilized in combination with design parameters in Light Structures real-time analysis software IBMS (Integrated Bridge Monitoring System) for comparison.
Bridge and Structural Stress Monitoring Operational Control
