Partners:

Dept. of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, U. of Thessaly
Dept. of Civil Engineering, U. of Thessaly
Institute of Technical Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, Thessaloniki, Greece (ΙΤΣΑΚ)


Objective:

The program concerns the instrumentation of a typical ravine bridge with tall piers in Egnatia Odos with accelerometers. The purpose of the project is to develop a monitoring/diagnosis technique for determining its structural condition. The results are of particular importance for typical bridges in areas of high seismicity.
