Modular Solution for Efficient Structural Health Monitoring

All structures, whether bridges, wind energy plants, water, gas and oil pipelines, tunnels, oil rigs, pavements, rails, but also ships, planes, trains or others are subject to various internal and external factors which may cause wear or malfunction. This can happen, for example due to deterioration, an incorrect construction process, lack of quality control or an extreme situation resulting from an accident or environmental load. 

To be able to observe these changes in the material and to react in a proper way before serious damage is caused, the implementation of a damage identification system is crucial. The monitoring of structural behavior can detect anomalies in time, thus enabling maintenance and repair actions to be implemented more efficiently, with a direct impact on the reduction of operating costs. Replacing schedule-driven maintenance with condition-based maintenance is the main goal of infrastructure monitoring providing the following benefits.

Structural Health Monitoring System for Different Industries

Civil Engineering

Short and long-term monitoring of bridges, tunnels, buildings and high pressure water pipe,roads and foundations. Measurement of the applied loads and life time prediction.


Continuous, stand-alone monitoring of vehicle loads, handling, out of roundness (WTMS) and effect on the superstructure (OBM). Long-term measurements on rails, railroad switches and ties.

Wind Energy


Professional structural monitoring of on- and offshore wind power plants. Measurement on tower, foundation, rotor blades and on other components. 

Oil & Gas

Efficient measuring on offshore applications. Using measurement technology to monitor risers, pipes, cranes, foundation structures, pipelines etc.

Explore Structural Health Monitoring by Application

Whether moving objects such as ships, planes, commercial vehicle, trains or static structures such as bridges, tunnels, pipelines, buildings or all a mix in wind energy with blades, tower and fundament – all structures suffer from wear, load, environmental condition or malfunction at some point.

To monitor overall physical and material changes over time and react before serious damage occurs, an effective monitoring system is required - either for short-term load measurement or long-term monitoring of the structure's condition. A system that's fit for purpose includes appropriate sensors, measurement data, secure data transmission, automatic data analytics, event alarms and notification, comprehensive logs, and remote diagnostics and control.

HBK's modular and scalable monitoring solutions, complemented by our competent support and service, saves time and money, provides valuable insights, and helps to increase the structure’s service life and safety.


Measurement Technology for Long- and Short-Term Monitoring

A customized solution including sensors, measuring amplifiers, data acquisition software, data transmission and analysis provides the technical basis for efficient monitoring. However, correct sensor installation, commissioning and maintenance, as well as the conditioning of test results are indispensable to ensuring successful use of a structural health monitoring system. Both HBK’s modular test and measuring equipment and the highly competent support and service provided by HBK support you and, if necessary, can handle your entire project.


Measurement data alone is not sufficient today. Data transmission, automatic alarms and analysis, comprehensive logs, as well as remote diagnostics and control are indispensable for operating monitoring systems. Whether you use a complex company network or a stand-alone solution, HBK is looking to provide you with the perfect solution.
