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 many external agents such as subsidence of the ground or vibrations caused by traffic or wind at the highest floors.

Dynamic & Static monitoring

It’s necessary to monitor for a long period both in dynamic and static conditions.

Surrounding stability

Monitor 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. Parameters such as accelerations, dynamic displacements, modal frequencies and temperature caused mainly by road traffic or environmental and climate conditions are monitored. With the use of Inclinometers 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.

Vibrations trends

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

Soil stability

You can evaluate both the pressures exerted by the ground, the load distribution on the foundations and its deformation.

Temperature trends

To understand the relationship, it is possible to superimpose the trend of daily or seasonal temperatures with the monitored values.

Tilt variation

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

Environmental monitoring

Control of all external atmospheric agents such as wind direction and speed, rain, humidity and temperature.

Geotechnical parameters

You can monitor the ground displacement (settlement or lateral movement) and groundwater levels.
