Sensors help engineers analyze bridge conditions

11/16/2009 | Philadelphia Inquirer, The

Engineers in Pennsylvania, Minnesota and other states are using data from sensors to study how bridges react to stress. In Philadelphia, for example, Drexel University researchers use the data to build computer models that display potential problems with the Burlington-Bristol Bridge. Meanwhile, Minnesota engineers are analyzing information from hundreds of sensors attached to the new Interstate 35 bridge.
