Does anyone here have construction/structural monitoring expertise and would help give an opinion?
I am researching feasibility of displacement monitoring for bridge falsework. The bents will be monitored weekly at 6 locations simultaneously while the bridge is jacked.
The bridge is an active site on a freeway with live traffic conditions, fair weather, and monitored for vertical and horizontal displacement over 3 months.
From my research and consultation, I’ve considered direct solutions such as visual methods (laser level), GPS, LVDT, gages and non-contact methods.
Due to the frequency, temporary basis, and number of locations, using a surveyor is impractical. I’m curious what are some other solutions if you were faced this problem?
