Innovative Structural Health Monitoring in Civil Engineering Infrastructure Sustainability

The team’s work leads to ioneering use of modern bridge reinforcement system with simultaneous long-term monitoring of the object. Thereby, effectiveness of the technique will be monitored on an ongoing basis.

The above-mentioned technology allows very fast and efficient construction of objects without the use of typical steel fasteners. Innovative monitoring system is used to analyse such reinforcement. Cameras and sensors will record the stress and strain in construction elements of a given bridge formed under the influence of vehicles passing by. Reinforcement of ferroconcrete bridge combined with monitoring system is the first undertaking of this kind in the country.

Mr Robert Siewiorek wrote more about the project in ‘Hiking with Patrons. A Polish-Swiss Adventure with Science’:

In the eighteenth century, the era of the master Baldini, one of the protagonists of the excellent novel “Perfume” by Patrick Süskind, bridges looked like that not only in Paris. It took mankind some time to understand the simple truth that bridges are meant to traverse them safely, and not to inhabit them.

Today’s engineers assume not so much that people using bridges will behave in an intelligent manner (an assumption which is somewhat exaggerated, given the recent arson of the Łazienkowski Bridge in Warsaw), but that these very bridges will be intelligent. Projects such as TULCOEMPA, combining construction industry and information technology, are driven by this objective. It is about the use of a modern system of bridge reinforcement with constantly monitored performance.

You will find more in story 16 of  ‘Hiking with Patrons. A Polish-Swiss Adventure with Science’: Building an inteligent bridge or from Paris to Szczercowa Wieś.
