Developing a low-cost vibration measurement system prototype for bridges using accelerometer sensors: A review
1*Maizuar, Said Jalalul Akbar, Salahuddin
Bridges are invariably subjected to several types of hazards such as traffic loading, aging condition and sudden extreme events. However, under the increase heavy traffic loading, the structural damage of a bridge could be accelerated. Excessive vibration and displacement induced by moving vehicles could considerably effect on the reduced service life of bridge structures. This paper presents a low-cost vibration and displacement measurement system prototype on bridges using wireless accelerometer-based sensing technique. In particular, this study reviews the advantages and capabilities of the measurement used in the recent studies. The results of this study could provide an alternative method in the selection of the appropriate approaches related to the bridge dynamic monitoring.
