Revolutionary method for the recognition of bridges collapseIBJ Technology2, Markkleeberg, Germany
Press release from: IBJ Technology - New procedure for the damage recognition at bridges of IBJ Technology. Bridges can be supervised on-line. With that new procedures of IBJ Technology for the permanent monitoring of bridges and other traffic routes could be recognized disasters as in time in Minneapolis. The world-wide only on-line procedure permits the measurement of loads and stress situations directly in the building. With ultrasonic the stress in the building directly and in real time is seized. All changes can be transferred immediately on-line by Internet Monitoring or Wireless Lan. The sensors are brought either directly into the building or later attached to endangered places. Design features such as carriers or bridge bearings can be supervised particularly simply. The sensors are constantly at or active in the building. The simple structure and the small size permit comprehensive application at all buildings from steel or concrete. In the procedure many traffic routes could be supervised world-wide. The costs of such a monitoring are small. IBJ Technology offers world-wide licenses for this new measuring procedure.
