MOPMO - Monitoring System for Bridge Abutments and their Surrounding Areas

The Project aims to:

• construction of a system for monitoring the underwater part of the support,

• construction of a scanning system of the above-water part of the support.

Project consortium consists of: IBDiM and Escort Ltd., which will commercially implement the project results.

Tasks foreseen in the Project are based on the design and development of monitoring systems in the underwater part of the support and scanning system in the above-water part of the support.

The result of the project will be the new bridge support monitoring service based on the measurement of the flow / water level and the level of scour around the bottom of the support. Bridge managers will be able to significantly increase the structural safety and reduce maintenance costs.

In the presented Project, two non-destructive testing methods will be applied: Sonar - method based on the propagation of acoustic waves and Ground Penetrating Radar technique based on the electromagnetic waves propagation in a wide frequency spectrum.

Systems, located in the underwater and above-water part of the support will be designed and constructed to ensure their full modularity and adaptability to any shape of the support.

Technical solutions developed in the frame of the Project are inventions and will be the submitted for national and European patent protection.
