Abstract
The durability of bridges and the ability to permanently fulfilltheir initial function are topics of rapidly growing interest. For a long time,inspection programs have been carried out to follow up evolution of largestructures. To help managers in the decisions, an advanced metrology wasintroduced in sensitive parts of bridges to assess the structural aptitude. Thestructure was thus given a certain "intelligence". The paper presents newbridge bearings equipped with load measuring devices based on an opticalfibre method.
