Full title: Digital Twin Anomaly Detection Decision-Making For Bridge Management
Project number: 101066739
Financing: Horizon 2020 (EU)
Total budget: € 226 751,04
Project period: 1st November 2022 – 31st October 2024 (2 years)

Bridge infrastructure in Europe has great economic, social and cultural value. Nevertheless, many of the assets which are part of this network are in poor condition, which has been recently evidenced by the collapse of several bridges. The available human and economic resources are simply not enough to repair, maintain or replace all bridges part of the European network. Therefore, improvements on the current bridge management and operation system are urgently needed.

The DTADD fellowship has two specific objectives. The first objective is to build digital twin (DT) models of heritage/conventional bridges to assess and identify the highest performing anomaly detection algorithm (ADA) for damage and/or significant decay detection. Its second objective is to develop an ADA-informed open-source decision-making tool based on a RBBMA, to assess the need for bridge intervention while explicitly considering the bridge’s CH value.

Full title: Research-based Structural Engineering in the Digital Age
Financing: Faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD), OsloMet
Total budget: 2 million NOK
Project period: 1st January 2019 – 31st December 2020 (2 years)

The objective of the ReSEDiA project is to strengthen the research basis of the Structural Engineering Research Group, establish its presence in the area both nationally and internationally, and to become leading in the field, while moving to the digital era taking full advantage of digitalization. This is important for the Bachelor, Master and PhD studies in Civil Engineering at OsloMet. The aim is for the group to be positioned in the national front in structural engineering while making impact also internationally. Furthermore, the cooperation with the Applied Artificial Intelligence group of OsloMet will promote interdisciplinarity and will open new interesting research challenges and paths.

Participating people at OsloMet: The Structural Engineering Research Group, The Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) research group
