Attention for building owners! Save money & life by structural health monitoring

Posted by Marklennon on November 6th, 2017

Structural health monitoring is the valuation of the building strength, and is also used to identify the security of the building and to enhance safety and maintenance actions of the complex buildings. This monitoring systems data tolerateproprietors to improve their building processes, maintenance, repairs, and renovate structures.

The main goal of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is to improvise safety and the infrastructure systems by noticing the damage before it closes to a critical state.  In Building health monitoring system, we can able to detect damage early, since early detection of damage help to save money and our lives!

Visual Inspection

Usually, damage finding can be performed through the periodic maintenance and by visual inspection done by capable personnel who impose high costs and also leads inconvenience on the structural system owners and users may alike.In addition, resources like ceiling tiles, partition walls, and fire proofing as well as qualified inspectors may not be available immediately after a damaging event, especially for urban areas.

Structural Health Monitoring(SHM)

Visual inspection is the non-destructive evaluation techniques. However, most of the methodsneed lot of manual work. Thus, currently SHM is rising, because it can provide best cost savings by reducing the number of manual work (visual inspections). MEMS and as well as wireless sensing are becoming the main features in SHM systems.

However, it is optimized and also autonomous, the SHM systems are still not spread anywhere.

Benefits of Integrated Building Health Monitoring Systems

  • It delivers complete solution.
  • Increased safety and prevent property damage.
  • Extend the lifetime of aging buildings
  • Monitor buildings by assessing the current condition whether repairs are needed.
  • Reduced insurance and maintenance costs
  • Quick and early assessments of damage and failures
  • Real time SHM for critical infrastructure
