Model Bridge Tests for CE 170A (Infrastructure Sensing and Modeling)

Students of CE 170A (Infrastructure Sensing and Modeling, taught by Professor Soga, Professor Kayen, and Professor Zekkos) had a lot of fun on September 14th. Model bridge tests were conducted as part of the Infrastructure Sensing module of the course, led by Jaewon and Shih-Hung. Three different bridges (single-angle, double-angle, double-angle with defect) were instrumented with distributed fiber optic sensors (put on by our students!), linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs), and WSN tilt motes to monitor the bridges under a vertical load.
