Manual bridge inspection procedures and facilities cannot be directly and effectively applied to the inspection of large bridges. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a structural health monitoring system for the bridge to monitor and evaluate the safety, durability and performance of the structure during the operation of the bridge.
Bridges carry a variety of vehicle loads in daily operations. The entire use of the bridge is a process of fatigue damage accumulation.
Campbell data acquisition system can be used for structural and seismic monitoring projects, from simple beam fatigue analysis to structural mechanics research, and continuous monitoring of large and complex structures, providing remote unmanned highway overpasses, roads, buildings, retaining walls and bridges On duty portable
This paper introduces a comprehensive method for field test and load verification of small and medium span bridges and the authors' experience in applying this method.
ForewordIn recent years, inclinometers have been widely used in building monitoring, structural tests and long-term monitoring of bridges. On the new Swing Bridge in Seattle, such equipment is required for construction and long-term monitoring; Golden Gate Bridge has recently installed inclinometers. Systematic
