Paper Abstract

Long-term continuous monitoring may be helpful in periodic evaluation of structures, decision-making for preventative maintenance, and examining new design techniques. Remote bridge-monitoring systems are expected to be useful in future bridge inspection and management. Reliability of data- collection systems, sensors, and communication systems in the service environment is critical for successful field operation. This paper briefly describes a study undertaken by New York State Department of Transportation to investigate reliability of a state-of-the-art bridge-monitoring system available at the inception of that study and to examine its utility for continuous monitoring of bridge structures.
