WP1 - Monitoring & Auscultation

The Work Package Monitoring and Auscultation (WP1) focuses on advanced monitoring and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques for stress and strain measurements and fatigue damage assessment. The aim is to benefit from novel sensors and improved physics based data processing methods to “smarten” the structures. These new techniques will be used to make monitoring much more efficient. By enabling the optimisation of preventive and corrective maintenance strategies, the project will help increase infrastructure availability and implement cost-efficient asset management. 

The Work Package Leader is Dr Ernst Niederleithinger from BAM.
