Infrastructure structural monitoring.

Struc­tur­al mon­i­tor­ing is intend­ed to con­trol an infra­struc­ture in real time. In order for this to hap­pen, the phys­i­cal-mechan­i­cal para­me­ters that describe the inter­ac­tion between the envi­ron­ment and the struc­ture to be stud­ied are mea­sured. Thanks to mon­i­tor­ing, it is pos­si­ble to eval­u­ate the reli­a­bil­i­ty of mate­ri­als and ver­i­fy their behav­ior in real-time, so as to pre­vent cat­a­stroph­ic events. In par­tic­u­lar, today, the needs emerg­ing in the engi­neer­ing field con­cern the struc­tur­al mon­i­tor­ing of exist­ing struc­tures; the pur­pose is to peri­od­i­cal­ly check the effi­cien­cy of the struc­ture, sched­ule any main­te­nance and time­ly inter­ven­tions in case of anomalies.

Exist­ing infra­struc­tures vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty has emerged strong­ly recent­ly: degra­da­tion process­es cause pro­gres­sive dam­age that over time leads to loss of func­tion­al­i­ty, until col­lapse is reached. It is for these rea­sons that the need to adopt sys­tems for the con­tin­u­ous mon­i­tor­ing of struc­tures is increas­ing­ly high­light­ed, so as to be able to eval­u­ate their per­for­mance over time.

Why use monitoring systems?

Through the use of struc­tur­al mon­i­tor­ing sys­tems it is pos­si­ble to con­stant­ly mon­i­tor the state of the struc­ture in order to:

  • avoid irrepara­ble dam­age or struc­tur­al collapse;
  • con­trol the insta­bil­i­ty pro­gres­sion of phenomena;
  • Man­age auto­mat­ic alarm sig­nals in case of exceed­ing the guard levels;
  • Plan pre­ven­tion and main­te­nance interventions.

The different monitoring methods.

Depend­ing on the struc­ture type and the para­me­ters to be mon­i­tored, dif­fer­ent con­trol meth­ods can be cho­sen. The mon­i­tor­ing method can be sta­t­ic, dynam­ic or sta­t­ic-dynam­ic.

ISAAC has devel­oped I‑Check a sta­t­ic and dynam­ic mod­u­lar mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem that sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the man­age­ment costs of the struc­tur­al mon­i­tor­ing activ­i­ty, thanks to on-site data processing.
