The project aims first at obtaining real measurements from an intelligent system of sensors (accelerometers), which measure the vibration in highway bridges. The results are evaluated with appropriate computational techniques (developed in the course of the present project) in order to assess the condition of highway concrete bridges, with emphasis on the structural integrity against earthquake.
