Opened in 2006, Dublin Port Tunnel has after more than a decade’s operation witnessed years of tunnel structural deterioration, water ingress etc. All such factors can on the one hand pose a threat to the safe operation and serviceability of the tunnels, and on the other increase the cost for inspection and maintenance. To minimize this effect, wireless sensor network will be deployed inside the tunnels to monitor their long-term response, as well as a 3D model will be developed to validate it.
