Abstract

Determine the feasibility of a low cost on-vehicle sensor system for assessing damage in bridges using multi-resolution signal processing techniques.    
Description
This project aims at using pseudo data from idealized vehicle-bridge systems, available data from a moving bus, and data acquired in the future from a new vehicle and bridge, to study the feasibility of a new approach for bridge structural health monitoring. The approach has the potential of causing a transformative change in the way bridges are monitored, based on the combination of two special features: 1) The bridge monitoring data is obtained from moving vehicles, and, is therefore, considered as an indirect bridge instrumentation; 2) The proposed structural classification mechanism makes use of highly accurate signal processing techniques used currently for biomedical imaging applications, such as multiresolution classification and wavelets analysis.
