The 1915 Çanakkale Bridge will become the world’s longest midspan suspension bridge with a 2,023-meter (6,637-feet) span between its towers, which are painted red and white to reflect the colors of the Turkish flag. The spires will tower 318 meters (1,043 feet) high and the total length of the bridge will reach 4,608 meters (15,118 feet).
In the construction of the longest bridge in the world, engineering had to overcome the challenge of effective earthquake protection in areas of high seismicity.
In order to monitor the area Lunitek provided LTFB-160-4G accelerometers and boreholes seismometers.
LTFB-160 BH provides excellent long term stability, reliable measurements and is ideally suited to challenging sites where measurements can be improved by using borehole installation.
