Sensors to monitor and predict structural damage

Aging or degradation in structures can potentially affect the performance or, in worst cases, cause damage or collapse. By monitoring the structures, you are able to do predictive maintenance, thus preventing damage or collapse.

In this case story, two of ElastiSense DS100 sensors were installed on a brige in Norway to measure and monitor its expansion caused by temperature and loadings. Precise data about the displacement is essential to be able to foresee wear and tear, fatigue, and potential crack generation on the bridge.

The overall purpose is to enable preventive measures and perform predictive maintenance on the bridge. You can even see Live data right here:

The DS-Series sensors are characterized by their ability to continuously deliver data, even in the harshest of environments, making them highly relevant for outdoor structural monitoring.
