Seitenhafenbridge (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
The monitoring system was included in the tender for the bridge. The tender design was prepared including specifications of sensors. Detail design was already considering the monitoring equipment. The goald was the verification of static calculation or input parameter for further investigations: Comparison of design assumptions with real structure. Calibration of finite element models to real structural behavior. Documentation of construction period or specific loading conditions.
