Structural Health

Structural health monitoring employs sensors and cutting-edge technologies for real-time assessment of infrastructure like bridges, buildings, and electrical sub-stations, among others. Continuous data collection and vibration monitoring identify potential issues, allowing proactive maintenance to enhance safety and prevent costly failures. Structural health monitoring is a proactive approach that minimizes downtime, reduces repair costs, and extends the lifespan of critical infrastructure. It is a crucial solution for addressing challenges tied to aging structures, ensuring their safety, and maintaining reliability in the face of dynamic operational conditions.

The main applications in this field:

Operational modal analysis (OMA)

Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) is a technique that assesses structural dynamics in real-world conditions. By extracting modal parameters from operational data such as vibration analysis, OMA allows for the continuous monitoring and evaluation of structures. This data-driven approach provides valuable insights into structural behavior and performance, aiding in informed decision-making for maintenance and safety measures.


Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) using vibration input, assesses real-time data for bridges, extracting modal parameters for continuous monitoring. This data-driven approach, including damping and natural frequencies evaluation, enhances structural bridge safety and resilience in dynamic conditions.

Electrical sub-stations

Electrical sub-stations require earthquake-resistant structures, anchored equipment, and automatic seismic monitoring. Emergency plans, backup power, and compliance with safety standards ensure resilience and functionality during seismic events on a large scale.

Other structures

All structures, including buildings, stadiums, landmarks, and historical constructions, can undergo evaluation and monitoring for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) using OMA techniques. Conducting structural assessments is essential for comprehending their behavior and determining pertinent measures for optimized maintenance and preservation of their legacy.
