Structural Monitoring

Structural monitoring involves the use of sensors and visual inspection to track the health condition of the structure. This can include monitoring for vibrations, movements, and other indicators of structural damage or wear.

infrastructure monitoring

    OVERVIEW

    Despite the quality of their design and construction, these infrastructures are aging and require appropriate monitoring and maintenance to avoid ruin, human or economic disasters.

    Sercel’s Structural Monitoring Solutions aim to monitor the deformations and movements of your engineering infrastructure and to guarantee their integrity. Our Solutions allow owners and operators to better execute maintenance programs, maximizing operational uptime and potentially extending the Remaining Useful Life (RUL).

    WHY SERCEL

    infrastructure monitoring

    Focused on innovation and high-end service, Sercel proposes several disruptive SHM solutions: S-lynks,S-morpho and Digital Twin 

    The reliable data, supported by the precise and global static and modal representation of the structure, is based on easily deployable and robust industrial sensors offering unparalleled accuracy and a complete, real-time Digital Twin Technology for measuring structural fatigue, Remaining Useful Life (RUL) and damage.

    Sercel enables its customers to :

    • Guarantee the continuity and operational efficiency of the structures
    • Reduce the costs of operations and maintenance of critical structures while controlling risks
    • Validate the life extension and safety of aging structures or those at the end of their operational life

    APPLICATIONS

    Saint Laurent footbridge

    What S-morpho did for structural monitoring?

    Discover the Saint-Laurent footbridge monitoring:

    • Monitoring of dynamic behavior (deformations and vibrations) following renovation works.
    • Implementation of a predictive model of deformation (deflection and torsion) according to environmental loads.

    Structural monitoring without destructive means

    Dynamic structural monitoring of bridges using ambient vibrations, called Operational Modal Analysis (OMA), is a powerful yet simple method to monitor dynamic changes in structures with low intrusiveness. Yet, several barriers hinder its adoption for real world applications, such as a lack of adequate sensors or industrial sensor networks and more generally, a lack of integrated solutions that answer asset owners’ real question: is my structure in good condition?

    How is it possible to validate  static deformation and operational Modal analysis numerical model and correlate model with sea, wind states and vessels docking?

    Morphosense solution was capable of calibrating numerical model using IP68 node with real-time monitoring using static deformation and operational modal analysis.

    Structural behavior under ambiant vibration only

    The wireless S-lynks solution includes an advanced software technology from an Inria-UGE research team providing an automatic operational modal analysis that meets all civil engineering control requirements for infrastructure. It offers a global vision of the entire structure by supplying accurate data about the mode frequencies and related distortion. QS3 mems is only used in S-lynks node.

    Our cabled solution S-morpho is also using a mems and offers the ability to make static and dynamic measurements with existing static sensors which can be connected for precise continuous monitoring.
