Bridges


The operating conditions, traffic and the environment are the cause of a large amount of damage that requires bridge managers to be particularly careful. Settlement of supports, problems of washout, cracking of the concrete decks, ageing of pre-stressing, movements, fatigue of metal bridges are all types of damage, whose origin and true impact on the mechanical behaviour of the structure are difficult to identify via traditional methods.

OSMOS validates the bearing capacity of the bridge beyond the sole criteria of appearance, thus preventing the risks and interruption to operations.

  • Monitoring of mechanical behaviour
  • Confirmation of return stability
  • Monitoring fatigue
  • Monitoring the ageing of the pre-stressing
