Infrastructure

The opportunity to monitor structures and the ground on which they are standing over extended periods is used by engineers to measure the effects of load or environmental conditions. This might be for the purpose of design verification, to monitor natural aging processes or to measure the damaging effect of earthquakes.

The opportunity to monitor structures and the ground on which they are standing over extended periods is used by engineers to measure the effects of load or environmental conditions. This might be for the purpose of design verification, to monitor natural aging processes or to measure the damaging effect of earthquakes. Real time structural integrity monitoring replaces visual inspection methods with sensors installed on or buried deep within buildings and structural components.
