Medway Bridge - Structural Monitoring
Ten Campbell Scientific CR10X dataloggers were used to
monitor movement during the repair of the UK's M2
Medway Bridge. The project required a jacking system to
be installed at each of the 20 piers, transferring the deck
loading from the bearings to allow the reconstruction of
the bearing plinths. Each carriageway deck weighed
around 1200 tons and once the load was transferred, the
jacks were monitored to ensure settlement at any pier
didn't exceed 2 mm. At each pier, a group of 10 jacks was
linked to a single pump, a pressure transducer in a hydraulic circuit fitted to each pair of
jacks with six linear transducers used to monitor the deck movement. The dataloggers were
set to trigger alarms and automatically call engineers via mobile phone if movement
exceeded preset values.
