Detection and monitoring of scour

Detection and monitoring of scour is an important part of the In2Track3 project, with research done at University of Minho!

A new approach is being developed for detection and monitoring of scour, based on excitation from moving loads, by measuring the structural responses which is affected by the boundary condition of the structure. Data from accelerometers placed in the train will be collected over several passes and analysed in order to identify scour problems.
