Abstract
A sizeable number of efforts have sought to instrument bridges for the purpose of structural monitoring and assessment. The outcomes of these efforts, as gaged by advances in the understanding of the definition of structural damage and their role in sensor selection as well as in the design of cost and data-effective monitoring systems, has itself been difficult to assess. The authors' experience with the design, construction, and operation of a monitoring system for the south-bound Kishwaukee Bridge has provided several lessons that bear upon these concerns. In this paper we describe certain aspects of the design of our Unix-based monitoring system. The system, patterned after similar systems developed for kick detection and well-control in the oil industry, has performed well in providing a continuous, low-cost monitoring platform for bridge engineers with immediately relevant information.
