Slide Building monitoring FOR STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS

Monitoring challenges

Structural deterioration

Analyze the deterioration over time of the crucial structural parts of the building like floors and beams.

Environmental phenomena

Buildings are stressed by external agents such as subsidence of the ground or vibrations caused by traffic or wind.

Dynamic monitoring

It’s necessary to monitor for a long period the dynamic conditions like the vibrations of the structure.

Static monitoring

Monitor the static parameters of the structure like the slow subsidence of the ground due to works or to weather agents.

KEY PARAMETERS FOR BUILDING MONITORING

Using Decks and Accelerometers to obtain a complete dynamic characterization of any type of building. You can monitor the modal frequencies and other parameters such as accelerations, dynamic displacements and temperature caused by road traffic or environmental and climate conditions.

With the use of Tiltmeters it is possible to monitor the static angular variation of the structural parts. Moreover, it is possible to obtain the deflection of floors, walls and beams through the use of more tilt meters in line.

With the use of Analog and Digital communication nodes it is possible to complete the monitoring system with other non-native wireless instruments of geotechnical type.

Modal analysis

You can monitor frequencies and natural modes of vibration of the structure.

Soil stability

You can evaluate both the pressures exerted by the ground, the load distribution on the foundations and its deformation (settlement or lateral movement).

Tilt variation

You can monitor the angular variation of the longitudinal and transverse axis of the structure.

Vibrations trends

You can view all the trends of the parameters detected by the sensors such as displacement, acceleration and speed.

Building IoT remote monitoring

Vibration Tilt icon Tilt icon Tilt icon To understand if the vibrations represent a disturbance or damage factor for the building and the occupants, it is possible to detect the trend of the vibrations with the use of Accelerometers. In this analysis, the values detected by the sensors are compared with the limit values established by DIN and UNI. Vibrational Analysis Modal Tilt icon Tilt icon Tilt icon By correlating all the daily oscillations detected by the Accelerometer, it is possible to analyze the natural modal frequencies of the structure, during a very long time interval. These frequencies are purged from white noise and atmospheric agents such as wind, rain and temperature. Modal Analysis Static monitoring Tilt icon Tilt icon Tilt icon Static Monitoring It is possible to carry out the static monitoring of all the structural elements of the building. You can monitor the settlements, stress, deformation, expansion or contraction of cracks and joint displacements. With the use of Tiltmeters, it is possible to monitor the static angular variation of the structural elements and to obtain the deflection of floors, walls and beams. Geotechnical Tilt icon Tilt icon Tilt icon Geotechnical monitoring With the Analog and Digital Nodes it is possible to complete the monitoring system with other geotechnical probes for ​monitor the ground displacement (settlement or lateral movement) and groundwater levels.
