Continuous Monitoring for the Management, Safety, and Reliability of Connecticut's Bridge Infrastructure

Researchers at the University of Connecticut have been working with researchers at the Connecticut Department of Transportation to develop and implement continuous bridge monitoring systems on a series of bridges in Connecticut. The monitoring systems are designed to evaluate the long-term behavior of the bridges and to evaluate safety and reliability to ensure that no major structural changes could lead to significant problems. The approach used to organize the large amount of data that are collected from the first three bridges in the project is described. The goal of this work is to facilitate the continuous evaluation of the bridge network and thus assist those responsible for the management and safety of Connecticut's bridge infrastructure.
