The guarantee of reliability and road safety of civil engineering structures is an important task within the building industry so that bearing structures can be safely used as long as possible even on condition of increasing traffic loads. There are specific standards and codes for the monitoring and control of civil engineering structures, in particular for bridges. Certain monitoring technologies based on the most different models have been elaborated in the past. In the last couple of years however they have developed especially procedures centered on the recording of vibration response, still the acceptance from part of the practitioners was but limited. Experience has proven that these procedures needed a major change in order for the technologies to be applied more often. The present report presents details on the benefit of monitoring for bridge maintenance based on the example of the Vienna Erdberger Bridge.
