Evening Lecture: Monitoring of Six Bridges for Twenty Movements of 427 tonne Superloads

With just two weeks’ notice, Monash was tasked with instrumenting and monitoring six bridges for multiple superload movements of U-trough bridge beams intended for a Level Crossing Removal Project in Melbourne to take place over 4 weeks. This project entailed multiple aspects atypical of even usual superload movements, most particularly the short time frame, the need to maintain traffic flows under the bridges, and the consideration of vandalism. In this talk, Dr. Caprani will outline the background to the project, the extraordinarily compressed timeframe, and the structural health monitoring solutions for each bridge adopted. The technical aspects of the theory and the instrumentation will be introduced.

Date: Tuesday 19th February 2019

Time: 18:30 (Tea/Coffee from 18:00)

Venue: TU Dublin (DIT), Bolton Street

Speaker: Dr. Colin Caprani, Senior Lecturer, Monash University
