Bridge crack monitoring

Strainstall’s bridge crack monitoring systems use a range of sensors and high speed data acquisition equipment to investigate crack behaviour under both dynamic and static loading.

The bridge crack monitoring system will optimise your maintenance management through monitoring the changes in crack behaviour and helping to determine the cause and subsequent actions required.

Benefits of Strainstall’s bridge crack monitoring system:

  • Compatible with Smart Asset Management™ - BridgeWatch™
  • Reduces the requirement for manual inspections
  • Optimises maintenance management
  • Cost effective
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Quality data provides the opportunity to predict failures

Why bridge crack monitoring matters:

Crack identification is one of the most important aspects of structural health monitoring. Cracks will occur in most structures and are often the first signs of more serious defects.

Visual inspections are time consuming, costly and in many instances the measurements are inaccurate and unreliable. Employing a system that can continuously monitor displacement and crack behaviour ensures that any potential issues are detected at an early stage before it becomes critical and leads to a costly compromise in structural safety and closures.
