Sensors on new California bridge to record earthquake data
A replacement bridge under construction at the nation's second-busiest port isn't just a crucial route for cargo trucks and Southern California commuters - it's a concrete-and-steel science experiment for engineers and seismologists. The new bridge, which will stretch 2,680 metres over the Port of Long Beach, is being built with about 75 seismic sensors that will measure the forces imparted on the span when one of several nearby faults set off an earthquake.
