The Dutch road infrastructure contains a large number of concrete bridges and viaducts. Malfunction of these bridges and viaducts has large financial consequences. To avoid malfunctions of bridges, bridges need to be inspected frequently and actions should be taken when required. The reliability of the inspections of the health of a bridge could...

Chloride-induced corrosion is a point of big concern in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. To monitor the actual health and to predict the remaining service-life of structures, it is important to understand the structural behaviour and the failure mechanism of structures exposed to chlorides under fatigue loading conditions. A beam test,...

One of the key-elements in Structural Health Monitoring of reinforced concrete structures is the level of rebar corrosion and the way in which it affects the structural performance. A dynamic four-point-bending test was developed to help understanding the deflections of concrete structures under corrod-ed conditions. With this test, two...

De-icing salts, used on roads in heavy winters, may enter reinforced concrete (RC) structures via its capillary pore system or via cracks, initiating reinforcement corrosion and reducing its remaining service-life. Vehicles passing real bridges exert a dynamic impact action that might activate a fatigue failure mechanism. In order to generate...

The remaining service life of concrete structures strongly depends on the corrosion level of the reinforcement bars. It explains that measuring the corrosion rate is a key issue in monitoring the structural health of concrete structures. A common and appropriate technique used to evaluate the instantaneous corrosion rate of steel reinforcement...

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems are frequently used in civil infrastructures. One important durability property in reinforced concrete (RC) structures is the level of steel bar corrosion. In a dynamic four-point-bending test, two beams are loaded simultaneously, in which corrosion is accelerated in one of them. Since geophones are...

For understanding the actual state of durability of concrete structures, it is important to know its response due to external loading. This response mainly depends on the actual structural and material properties of the structure, while loaded. Mechanical and chemical degradation are the main mechanisms that may affect these properties with time...

In the field of civil infrastructure, Structural Health Monitoring systems are implemented more and more frequently with the aim to safeguard the safety and service-life of structures such as bridges and tunnels. Changes in the integrity of the material and/or structural properties of this class of structures is known to adversely affect their...

The InfraWatch project is a Dutch research project, aimed at developing novel techniques for large-scale monitoring of concrete infra-structures. The project involves a large bridge, fitted with multiple types of sensors that capture the high-resolution dynamic behavior of the bridge. With 145 sensors measuring at 100 Hz, a huge amount of data...
