SAFE 10 T takes part in 1st SENSKIN project workshop
1st SENSKIN Workshop, Monitoring Systems for Resilient and Sustainable Bridges, held on 8th November 2017 in Brussels
In a lively and fruitful discussion, around 40 participants from different countries provided valuable input to the work of the project at this meeting. The aim of this first workshop was to analyse the functional and operational requirements of the SENSKIN system based on the needs of bridge owners and operators, as well as the methodology of the SENSKIN monitoring system. To facilitate and enhance knowledge exchange between practitioners in the field of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), a number of systems already being used and developed within the project context were also presented.
These included the last presentation of the workshop was entitled Safety of Transport Infrastructure on the TEN-T Network. The presenter, Lorcan Connolly of ROD, gave an overview, among others, of the SAFE 10T project, which is developing a Safety Framework to ensure high safety performance while allowing longer life-cycles for critical infrastructure across the road, rail and inland waterway modes. The Safety framework will incorporate remote monitoring data stored in a BIM model that feeds into a decision support framework (DST) that enables decisions to be made automatically with maintenance prioritised for elements exhibiting stress.
