Moveable bridges including drawbridges are critical to keeping both marine and vehicular traffic moving smoothly. The advantage to a moveable bridge is that it is less expensive to build than a moveable bridge. Moveable bridges in the US fall under the jurisdiction of the coast guard and operate 24/7 except during rush hour when they are permitted to stay in the closed position. |
Regular movement of components of bridge during opening and closing of bridge to allow passage to ships, salt water and high humidity at the bridge site can cause rusting, minor and major deteriorations, cracks and other damages. Therefore moveable bridge inspection are essential for increasing the life of moveable bridge and for its proper functioning.
Movable Bridge Inspection are performed at regular intervals by team of engineers who use destructive methods to collect samples for testing the conditions of the bridge. These conventional methods can damage the structure and also cause inconvenience to the traffic because the bridge needs to be closed temporarily for a thorough inspection. Many of the current inspection techniques cannot forecast very common issues that occur with moveable bridges.
