Cleveland Bridge in Bath: Artificial Intelligence and Monitoring of a Complex Structure

10:50 - 11:15 Bridge Inspections and Assessments
  • Concerns over the structural integrity of Cleveland Bridge in Bath arose due to section loss on corroded steel hanger bars.
  • AI powered analysis of displacements and strains provides confidence in understanding the structure’s operational behaviour.
  • Load testing allowed the distribution of forces across the supports to be evaluated under a range of load configurations.
