Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)
Automated stationary structural health monitoring system (SHM) is a subsystem of buildings and structures control system which has been developed in accordance with the applicable requirements of the corresponding standards. It is used to detect a transition of the building state from operational into the state of failure, that may eventually lead to fatal accidents.
Structural health monitoring system (SHM) allows to timely detect ground base bearing capacity change as well as to reveal changes of structural elements and to inform the monitoring service of critical changes in the bearing structures parameters. Structural Health Monitoring system is a set of subsystems that are used for the controlled parameters monitoring in real-time mode. Depending on Customer’s requirements, the Structural Health Monitoring System may include all types of the monitoring systems or a particular task-specific set of the monitoring systems. The number of the control points depends on the structure of a particular facility; thus, these parameters are calculated in the course of system development based on the design documentation.
