Addressing the Issue of Insufficient Information in Data-based Bridge Health Monitoring

The ultimate goal is to develop, investigate and validate, through numerical and experimental test data, techniques to address the issues and consequent limitations related to scarcity of measured data in data-based bridge health monitoring. This will be accomplished in two stages. In the first stage, the project proposes to explore various methods to overcome the problem of data shortage. In the second stage, data from computer simulations and laboratory experiments will be used to study the comparative advantages/disadvantages of the approaches considered in the first stage of the research. Both in the simulation and experimental data, considerations will be made to account for ambient variability in structural response and damage sensitive features extracted therefrom. Based on the results of the comparative study, efforts will be made to develop a unified approach that addresses the issue of measurement data scarcity. It is expected that the results of this proposed research will be of great use for the entire infrastructure engineering community.
