Studying Stresses on the I-35W Bridge


Twelve years after the collapse of the old I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, the new bridge is under constant monitoring through sensors that have been on the structure since it was completed in 2008. MSI PI Lauren Linderman (assistant professor, Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering) is collecting and analyzing the data from these sensors. An article, including a video, about this research appears on the College of Science and Engineering website: Smart bridges.

Professor Linderman uses MSI resources for some of the analyses of the I-35W bridge sensor data.
