Structural Health Monitoring

MATRiSeb provides structural health monitoring (SHM) and vibration control services for buildings and structural systems. The main goal of SHM is to keep track of the safety and changes of the structural members using vibration measurements obtained from the structure. The components of a SHM system are:
  • Measurement Sensors
  • Connectivity (data transmission, power)
  • Server and operator computer
  • Software
The design of a SHM system is not only the selection of sensors and the installation is not only installing them at their intended location. The complete design and installation procedure is a SHM system includes the following steps:
  • Developing 3D FE model(s)
  • Structural & dynamic analysis
  • Determination of critical structural elements
  • Determination of measurable parameters
  • Determination of safety criteria
  • Selection of sensors
  • Selection of sensor locations
  • Construction & installation documentation & drawings
  • Installation of sensors in building
  • Initial measurements
  • Updating mathematical (FE) model
  • Additional measurements
  • Updating of SHM software
  • Data analysis
MATRiSeb provides a broad range of consulting services for SHM applications in buildings and structural systems, including:
  • Real-time measurement sensor technology for SHM
  • Optimal sensor placement for SHM
  • Real-time in-situ testing and monitoring
  • Structural health monitoring analysis software
  • Modal testing for frequency and mode shape identification
  • Damage identification and assessment
  • Data Interpretation and analysis
