Why use structural health monitoring?

With the use of structural health monitoring, it is possible to gain insight in the physical state and behavior of your structural assets. Through data collection and data analysis, our platform can visualize and create a complete overview of your constructions and their current and historical condition. Having a digital representation of the structural behavior can be used as assistance in making the right decisions at the right time, to ensure a healthy structure now and in the future.

In short, structural health monitoring can be used to assess the current structural health, remaining lifetime estimations, plan maintenance, and to prevent catastrophic collapse.

Great maintenance costs

Extended downtime

Accidents and deaths

The Great Belt Fixed Link has already spent tens of millions of Euros on maintenance with an assumption that the maintenance cost is rising. The possibility of using structural health monitoring to gain insight into the bridges conditions has the potential for saving millions of Euros.

Traditionally all maintenance work has been planned based on design life, but structural health monitoring provides the possibility to maintain based on condition instead of a concrete time schedule. If the change of bridge bearings can be pushed just a few years, it can save millions over a larger timespan.

Read about how KI helped out at the Great Belt

In 2011 11 cracks were found in the Storstrøm bridge, which resulted in a total stop in train traffic on the bridge for weeks and stopped freight trains permanently from using the bridge. Once damage has occurred or has grown too much, closures can become a necessary consequence to ensure safety.

Structural health monitoring can help locate the damaged and weak areas before they become to severe to require closures. The Storestrøm bridge did not have structural health monitoring before the damage occurred, but it  helped monitor the conditions when the damage was located to ensure safety while the structure was repaired and operational to ensure the safety of passengers.

The worst-case scenario for structures will always be total collapse. In 2018 a freeway bridge in Genoa Italy collapsed killing 43 people.

Structural health monitoring provides improved safety in constructions by giving insights into the structures condition. Knowledge about the structures condition can mean the difference timely action and catastrophic consequences.
