Horsetail Fall, Oregon
Shear strain measurement
Clients:Oregon Department of Transportation
Début des travaux:1998
Fin des travaux:0
Installation:Blue Road Research
Historic bridge in the Columbia river area. Due to increasing loads from tourist busses the bridge was strengthened by a composite wrapping.
Objectifs de contrôle:
Two SOFO sensors were surface installed in addition to a number of Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors embedded in the composite. The sensor measure the flexure and the shear components of the strain.
Nombre de capteurs:2
The SOFO sensors are installed periodically under the bridge in conjunction with the load tests that are performed to verify the structural response of the wrapped beams
