The Bridge Health Monitoring System Based on SCM


Article Preview

It plays a very important role for the national economy and social security to gain bridge structure characteristic signal scientifically, to evaluate the bridge health condition and to guarantee long-term safe operation. The bridge health monitoring system is a major technique to settle those problems, which is in charge of working status inspection, health detection and alarm via field data, providing a solid safeguard for well-balanced operation of the bridge as well as the security of people’s life and property. This paper proposes a bridge health monitoring system based on wireless sensor network, which collects information of each mechanical part of the bridge. Sensor nodes form a smart measurement, and control network through self-organization, then transmit to the control center through network, by this way we can achieve real-time automatic remote monitoring on the bridge health.
