Infrastructure provides energy, transport, water and other essentials that are the basis of a society and economic well-being. In terms of growth slowdown, the highest risk exposure to Indonesia is transport infrastructure. Its poor condition limits access to health facilities, schools and also inflates prices. To address these concerns, this project will establish long-term UK-Indonesia collaboration on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) whilst simultaneously developing links between research community and SHM industry to improve maintenance and ensure integrity of infrastructure. A new ‘Centre for intelligent infrastructure’ will be formed and the founders include Indonesian Ministry of Public Works and Housing, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember and the University of Warwick.
The first project at the Centre for Intelligent Infrastructure in Indonesia is Structural Health Monitoring of the Suramadu Bridge. Suramadu Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge which is part of a 5.4km long connection between Madura Island and Surabaya on the island of Java in Indonesia. The video below represents the bridge:
Suramadu Bridge constructed over six years (2003–2009). There are 3 parts of this bridge. The first one is fly-over on both side, covering 1458m from Surabaya and 1818m from Madura. The second part is the connectors (approach bridge) of 627m each. The last part is a central bridge which consists of two 192m side-extensions and a 434m main span. The bridge comprises two symmetrical cable-stayed cantilever sections. The deck is 30m wide and comprises two longitudinal steel girders, approximately 2.8m deep, stringers and floor beams and a reinforced concrete slab with 250mm in depth. The video below shows the construction phases of the Suramadu Bridge.
