  • Mimicking fish and tailoring radar to warn of bridge peril | think:blog
    Water passing a bridge support forms vortices which erode the river bottom But how and at what rate scour occurs is complex River bottoms usually consist of sand clay shale or sandstone or a mix and each material acts a little differently in a strong current he explained To characterize each vortex Yu s lab is building flow sensors based on tiny hair like sensors that salmon have on the sides of their bodies Researchers have found the fish determine flow direction by the direction the hairy cells move and speed by the time delay as turbulence passes different sensors Yu s lab built sensors comprised of micro pillars made with piezoelectric fibers mounted on flexible copper rods The fibers produce electric signals reflecting flow direction and speed These have proven sensitive and accurate the lab is now developing arrays for real time flow and turbulence sensing To determine the amount of sediments being scoured away his lab has built sensors that constantly measure the topography where the water meets the river bottom around the bridge supports These sensors employ a technology called time domain reflectometry in which radar is fired along waveguides installed at critical ground locations The electromagnetic waves return at different speeds depending on the materials they strike and distance traveled The waves are analyzed with an algorithm developed by Yu s lab to reveal minute changes in the depth and density of the substrate sediments The sensors proved durable sensitive and accurate when tested on bridge supports 10 20 feet below the surface The next step is to determine the maximum depth and flow conditions under which the sensors provide accurate and immediate information Yu s lab is also investigating sensors that can monitor the stability of the bridge structure itself The package of sensors will
