Title: Structural Performance monitoring and evaluation of scoured bridges under dynamic actions
Our ERIES (HORIZON-INFRA-2021-SERV-01-07) project is funded. The project will test for the first time in the international literature large scale specimens of bridge foundations under multihazard scenarios, as we have noticed that many bridges are scoured due to floods exacerbated by climate change and then they are subjected to earthquakes.
The project coordinated by Politecnico di Milanoinvolves several academic and industrial partners: University of StrathclydePolitecnico di Torino, Brunel University London, Università Politecnica delle Marche, University of Birmingham , Democritus University of Thrace – (D.U.Th.), Université Gustave Eiffel, Università di CamerinoEgnatia Odos S.A., SMARTEC SA, TAILOR ENGINEERING.
We will have access to the SoFSI shaking table at the University of Bristol to study vibration based approaches to monitor scoured bridges and to evaluate their performance under dynamic actions.
