Statistical Bridge Signatures

  title={Statistical Bridge Signatures},
  author={Christopher W. Follen and Masoud Sanayei and Brian R. Brenner and Richard M. Vogel},
Instrumentation of bridge structures provides a stream of data representing operational structural response under loading. The authors define the term bridge signature as the expected response of a particular bridge under loading, as measured by different instruments. In this research, the authors propose a new method to develop and evaluate a bridge signature. The signature can be monitored over time and statistically evaluated to detect potential structural deterioration and damage. An… CONTINUE READING
