Live Load Monitoring for the I-10 Twin Span Bridge

The objectives of this project are to validate the performance of the monitoring system and the OSMOS Weigh in Motion (WIM), develop a data interface tool to easily produce data downloads in table and graphical formats, and to determine the effects of traffic loads on instrumented components of the structure. This project is to verify the installed monitoring system for the purpose of investigating the field performance of bridges at specific locations. The purpose of the monitoring system is to measure not only the strain/stress and deformation of the instrumented bridge components, but also the traffic/live loads to evaluate the existing practice and provide recommendations for future practice and design improvement. The ultimate goal of this project is to provide Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) with more successful bridge constructions and maintenance, which will lead to a reduction of the related cost.
