Storebælt (Great Belt Bridge) connects the two major Danish islands Sealand and Funen. Part of maintaining the bridge lies in a number of sensors and dataloggers monitoring change in inclination, weather and movement among other factors. In 2015 we installed sensors on the western part of Storebælt as part of a complete new Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system. Shortly thereafter we started working on a new monitoring software to ease the collection and analysis of the data coming in on the West Bridge.
The software includes graph tools, graphic representation of all installed sensors, easy access to all logged data, error logs and possibilities to compare and analyse data directly within the program.
Design, produce and install a complete, new and modern, SHM system for the West Bridge including the monitoring software. All aspects of the program were developed in-house including programming and graphical user interface.
The software was finished in the summer of 2016 and installed along with a number of new sensors.
In 2017 we started work on an adaptation to also include the suspension bridge.
Newly installed sensors: vertical movement sensor.
Horisontal movement sensor.
