||For the past 4 years a multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University ofCincinnati Infrastructure Institute (UCII) has been studying the development of instrumentedmonitoring based condition assessment methods by making use of two fully operationalreinforced concrete deck on steel stringer bridges in the Cincinnati, OH area. Theinstrumentation packages allow for the measurement of ambient conditions, as well as lowfrequency and high frequency components of structurally related signals. In addition, eachbridge is equipped with a weigh-in-motion (WIM) scale which allows the weight and speed ofall vehicles crossing the bridge to be monitored. All measurements are recorded by a PC-based data acquisition system. Both bridges are tele-remotely operable from laboratories atUCll via standard telephondmodem connections and custom designed software forming auser friendly data acquisition system interface. This paper reports on the current status of theresearch effort behind the development of the monitor and its associated user interface.
