Bridge deflection and displacement
Strainstall has many years of experience in the installation of deflection and displacement measuring systems for bridges.
Incorporating a range of specialist sensors and instrumentation, our systems link data acquisition equipment to capture information that enables full deflection and displacement characteristics to be measured.
Strainstall has extensive experience in the installation of deflection and displacement measuring systems for bridges, utilising its range of specialist sensors and instrumentation.
Benefits of Strainstall’s bridge deflection and displacement monitoring:
- Determines whether performance falls within structural design criteria
- Quality data provides the opportunity to predict failure
- Confidence to plan preventative maintenance strategies
- Increased safety and reduced costs
Why bridge deflection and displacement monitoring matters:
Displacement is the scope in which an element moves from its initial position to its final position and deflection is the displacement caused when a load is applied.
Deflection and displacement occurs naturally in bridges from various sources such as load and temperature changes. It is important to measure these deflections and displacements in order to calculate and verify that they occur within acceptable limits, and reduce the possibilities of cracks and structural damage.
