Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)

By performing long-term continuous Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) it is possible to monitor and track a structure’s state and carry out condition-based maintenance to ensure structural integrity.

Structures degrade over time due to use, harsh environmental conditions, and accidental events. Using continuous, long-term Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) makes it possible to follow the structural state and determine the required health management of the structure such as the organization of maintenance and repair.

Structural Health Monitoring is a very important objective for end-users, manufacturers, and maintenance teams as it:

  • Allows for optimal use of structures
  • Minimizes downtime
  • Can avoid catastrophic failures
  • Extends lifetime of structures
  • Helps improve the design of structures
  • Helps optimize the organization of maintenance services

Our SHM solutions cover the complete measurement and analysis chain. They include automatic data upload and processing, mode tracking, damage detection, and drift analysis. Notification (alert) services such as visual, auditive, email, and web services can be configured.

Our damage detection algorithms work in the physical domain using state-space models instead of in the reduced modal domain. This gives a more robust detection with the highest possible accuracy.
