Structural Health Monitoring
In the event of an earthquake, a seismic structural monitoring system allows for rapid assessment of the structural integrity - so you can make quick decisions on usage or occupancy.
Güralp instrumentation is used for monitoring civil structures such as bridges, railways and tunnels; energy infrastructure such as gas pipelines, hydroelectric dams and nuclear power stations; and buildings such as historic monuments, commercial facilities and multi-occupancy buildings.
Seismic data produced through the system informs structural health management processes to maximise the value and efficiency of the building maintenance programme. As well as monitoring for signs of structural deterioration or unusual levels of vibration, the instrumentation can also be used to alert authorities and trigger automated safety procedures in the event of an earthquake.
In addition to providing advice on system design, we can work with your engineering consultants to deliver a network that both meets your needs and satisfies local legislation.
We can also provide baseline monitoring surveys for new engineering projects to inform the design process.
