Damage Detection

Damage detection is emerged from the need for assessing the state of health of structural systems after violent ground motion. The matter is of significant practical and economic importance given that assurance of structural safety is required before structures can be reoccupied following a major earthquake. Damage detection service is provided with a state-of-the-art vibration-based non-destructive method. The method is based on contrasting response signals measured during a potentially damaging event with reference signals computed in such a way that they coincide with the measurements only when the structure is healthy.

Damage detection service provides accurate information to be used in decision making. Our technology allows estimation of damage levels after damage detection. Thus, a structure that has undergone nonlinear behavior and has suffered notable permanent changes can be distinguished from a structure that has not go through significant permanent changes
