Monitoring steel bridges
Steel bridges are subject to accelerated degradation due to aging and fatigue under increased service loads. Asset management of steel bridges often suffers from lack of knowledge and certainty over the asset condition, the associated unexpected down-time, and high costs of inspection.
UniQ can be used for monitoring various types of fatigue damage such as deck-plate cracks and cracks at the intersection of the stiffeners with the deck plate and cross-beams. Location and growth rate of all active cracks in the monitoring area can be identified by UniQ. Installation and operation of UniQ cause no interference with the normal operation of the bridge.
