Abstract [en]

This document provides recommendations how to specify, design, implement and operate monitoring systems in a systematic and coherent way. It defines the actors and their roles within the monitoring activity. The guideline introduces the concept of model monitoring system as the fundamental planning tool for specifying the physical monitoring system. This tool allows bridge owners and structural engineers to specify their requirements on a monitoring system by using concepts that are familiar to them. The concept of model monitoring system permits to separate the roles and responsibilities of the different actors and to clearly define the interface between structural engineer (bridge expert) and monitoring experts. The model monitoring system enhances the role of the structural engineer within the monitoring process by placing his knowledge of bridges in the centre of the process.This guideline requires that the design of the model monitoring system have to be based on a bridge model. This requirement automatically provides an interpretation scheme for the data generated by the physical monitoring system without it this data would be meaningless.The task of the monitoring expert is to implement and operate a monitoring system that conforms to model monitoring system specified by the structural engineer. Since monitoring technology evolves rapidly, this guideline does not address in detail the technological oriented components of the monitoring process. Nevertheless, a monitoring toolbox is included, which provides briefly the most relevant information to different methods, algorithms and sensors being in use in monitoring. The goal of the toolbox is to provide condensed technological background information for the structuralengineer. This information allows him to influence the design of the physical monitoring system.The appendices contain guidelines of the novel monitoring techniques developed within the project. The scope of these guidelines is to promote the use of these novel techniques in practical monitoring activities. Additional background information is provided by 5 documents listed below:

– SB-5.1 Monitoring Instrumentation and Techniques (Feltrin et al., 2007)

– SB-5.2.S1 Guidelines for Monitoring of Steel Railway Bridges (Sedlacek et al.,2007a)

– SB-5.2.S2 Guideline for Estimating Structural Damping of Railway Bridges(Feltrin and Gsell, 2007)

– SB-5.2.S3 Corrosion Monitoring Systems for Reinforced Concrete Bridges(Sørensen and Frølund, 2007)

– SB-5.2.S4 Estimating Reliability of Monitoring Systems for Bridges (Luczynski etal., 2007)
