Title: Live Load Test and Long-Term Monitoring of the Varina Enon Bridge
Author(s): Carin L. Roberts Wollmann
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a process aimed at providing actionable, accurate, and in-time information concerning structural health condition and performance of concrete structures. The information obtained from monitoring is generally used to plan and design maintenance activities, to increase the safety and to mitigate post-event consequences, to verify hypotheses, to reduce uncertainty, and to widen the knowledge concerning the concrete structure being monitored. While SHM benefits have great promise, SHM is still not applied in a widespread manner, and the end users are frequently reluctant to apply it. The aims of this full-day session are: 1. To pull together several examples of SHM real-life applications, raise awareness about how the SHM is applied, understand:
1. The overall behavior of concrete structure, and identify related challenges; and
2. To present case studies of SHM real-life applications and assess the corresponding SHM benefits, and present them to interested parties and broader public by presentations during the session.
