Real-time sounding methods to limit shutdowns of operations

Monday, 7 November, 2016 - 00:00

In the presence of proven structural risks, classic sounding methods offer no alternatives to closure to the public, as a precaution, despite the economic repercussions that entails. However, ongoing real-time tracking via optical cables makes it possible to accurately monitor the risk of spread of any problems and guarantee the continuity of operations. Maintaining traffic flows during...

OSMOS - strain measurement on a road bridge

Wednesday, 21 September, 2016 - 00:00

  The bending of 3 spans of the road bridge is monitored by 8 OSMOS Optical Strands installed on the top and bottom members of the steel frame. Each heavy vehicle passing through is recorded by the Expert System Acquisition, which allows the reconstruction of the evolution of the structure under the effect of each convoy : stresses magnitude in the material, estimation of broaches...
