In this webinar, we review bridge monitoring applications, the main challenges in data recording and analysis, and how enhanced technologies can be used to improve the design and management of bridges.
The installation on a bridge of a network of sensors transforms the structure into a 'smart’ system, as it provides both periodic and post-event information on the bridge operational life and state of health.
An increasing number of bridges around the world are equipped with either short-term or permanent monitoring systems. Ambient, service-level and event response data can be analysed using both classical and state-of-the-art algorithms for signal processing, including machine learning techniques to predict damage. The analysis of the ongoing flow of incoming data allows to identify in real time structural deficiencies and the specific impact of heavy vehicles.
Giovanna Zanardo has a PhD in Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics from the University of Trieste, and a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Western Australia and will be presenting this webinar.
