Bridge Signature Development

Vibrational monitoring has been used to provide a global characterization of a Connecticut bridge using a prototype monitoring system. Loading was provided by random traffic. The vibrational data was processed to develop a bridge signature, useful for long-term monitoring purposes. Previous work at The University of Connecticut has demonstrated that the changes in the bridge which would occur when failure mechanisms develop will result in changes to this signature.
