    Abstract

    The Clifton Suspension Bridge is an emblematic structure in Bristol, UK. In this paper, a rapid deployment of a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system for short-term monitoring is described. The system, deployed in a single day, integrates wireless SHM and open-source data management systems to gather valuable information about the bridge use (loading). The deployed system can be used to inform structural response models as well as studies for traffic engineering purposes. The use of opensource software was critical to the successful deployment.
