In September 2016, Resensys wireless technology for monitoring fracture critical bridges was presented at the Northeast Bridge Preservation Partnership (NEBPP). NEBPP is comprised of representatives from regional state and local highway agencies, provincial transport agencies, industry, suppliers, consultants, and academia.
A fracture critical bridge is defined by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as a bridge with one (or more) steel member in tension whose failure would lead to partial or complete collapse of the bridge. According to the National Bridge Inventory Database of FHWA, the transportation infrastructure in the United States has more than 18,000 fracture critical bridges. Resensys offers wireless remote monitoring using SenSpot sensors which for concurrently monitoring strain, temperature, and inclination on structural members of fracture critical bridges.
