Schirmen Technologies was created to develop and manufacture advanced protection systems to mitigate the vulnerability of critical transportation infrastructure. Through high-fidelity physics-based (HFPB) finite element models and live testing, Schirmen Technologies engineers provide efficient, economical and site-specific solutions.
Landmark suspension and cable-stay bridges across the world have different vulnerabilities based on their size, stand-off, cable configurations, connections and proximity to local authorities among many other variables. All such variables greatly influence the efficacy of potential terrorist threats against a bridge. Schirmen Technologies uses advanced materials and modeling methods to design, tailor-made protection and resilience measures specific to each cable-shield configuration.
