A New Health Monitoring System for Cable-Stayed Bridges I: Consist and Contents


Article Preview

Based on the purpose of the bridge health monitoring, a new health monitoring system, including hardware and software part, is proposed for cable-stayed bridges in detail. The system is categorized as five sub-systems covering sensor system, data acquisition system, data analysis system, simulation analysis system, and warning system. Many monitoring parameters including environment wind, temperature field, humidity field, strain, deflection, cable forces, and traffic can be obtained by those five sub-systems. The purpose and monitoring content of each parameter are illustrated in the paper, and moreover, the method of the layout of the measuring points is put forward.
