Structural Health Characterization of an Old Riveted Iron Bridge By Remote Sensing Techniques.

(15-7-2015)

 

A 45 m long single span truss road bridge, built in 1930 in Southern Italy, is still serving the local community while no regular maintenance operations have been performed since its construction. In order to estimate its actual static and dynamic behavior, to predict its load carrying capacity and to preliminary estimate its remaining service life, an extensive campaign assessment is carried out by Terrestrial Radar Interferometry. In one only field work, all necessary data were collected allowing a few impact on the local traffic and a reduction of the costs.
