Structural Health Monitoring: A Technologically Preparedness Solution for Infrastructure Health Management
By Ajoy Kumar Das Living in the era where daily life is driven by fast evolving technologies, it is often hard to believe that civil and...
A new, more powerful generation of a patented Southwest Research Institute magnetostrictive sensor more accurately detects potential problems in oil, gas and chemical industry metal and nonmetal structures such as pipelines, storage tanks and anchor rods.
An entrepreneurial team based at the University of Delaware is working to commercialize a system that could make infrastructure such as bridges and pipelines safer.
Sandia National Laboratories, working with Structural Monitoring Systems PLC, a U.K.-based manufacturer of structural health monitoring sensors, outfitted a U.S. bridge with a network of eight real-time sensors able to alert maintenance engineers when they detect a crack or when a crack reaches a length that requires repair.
There is great interest in using distributed sensors to continually monitor the structural health of large structures such as dams or bridges.
Researchers at MIT have developed a computational model that makes sense of ambient vibrations, picking out key features in the noise that give indications of a building’s stability.
Topcon Positioning Group announced the release of Delta Solutions, its new deformation monitoring system.
Researchers have developed a multi-layered “sensing skin” to detect corrosive or otherwise harmful substances in structures. The skin can also detect cracks and other structural flaws that are invisible to the naked eye.
