Online Structural Monitoring for Safety

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is to monitor and evaluate building performance during the structures’ life cycle to provide safe and optimized environment for the users. Instrumentation and the data recorded plays an important role in providing verification of design assumptions, managing the construction in a safe and controlled manner, safeguarding existing buildings and other structures and monitoring long term behaviour.

Monitoring of Landslides

A good prediction and forewarning system, when implemented with effective efforts to control and mitigate landslides, can drastically reduce destruction caused by landslides. Unstable slopes require monitoring systems that can be accessed remotely and provide an immediate warning in case of failure. Advances in geotechnical instrumentation, surveying technologies and data transmission systems now make it possible to monitor these slopes conveniently and economically

Monitoring Diaphragm Wall Displacement & Associated Ground Movement

Deep excavation is required for construction of structures like high rise buildings, underground garages and underground mass transport systems operating at several levels. In many such cases diaphragm wall is a good solution. Excavation in soft ground induces ground movement. This may damage adjacent existing sensitive structures. Deformation must be limited to acceptable levels in deep excavation. Instrumentation of the zone of influence is essential for the safety of the construction works

Instrumentation of Bridges

Instrumentation of bridges both existing and under construction is of paramount importance. During construction instrumentation is required to verify design parameters, evaluate performance of new technologies used in construction of bridges, to verify and control the construction process and for subsequent performance monitoring. Existing bridges need to be monitored to ensure performance during the life cycle of the bridge.

Consolidation of Soft Soil

During construction of projects such as highway embankments, dams, large storage areas, tanks, airport runways or buildings on soft compressible soil a settlement may occur. This is due to the consolidation of soil under the superimposed load. The construction of a facility on top of soft soil should be delayed until there is assurance that it will not be damaged by settlement that occurs during subsequent consolidation, to avoid serious and potentially expensive. Using consolidation techniques like surcharging and the installation of vertical drains can reduce the time required for consolidation.

Seepage Measurement in an Open Channel through a Weir

Wherever there’s an embankment or a concrete dam, the chances of seepage around it are quite high. Seepage monitoring is most important for an embankment dam. If the seepage is left unmonitored, it can pose a significant threat to the dam as well as the surroundings. Hence, the amount of seepage, the exact location of the seepage path along with the speed with which it’s growing are a few factors that affect the structural behaviour of a dam.

Monitoring of Dams

Instrumentation plays a key role in safety monitoring for dam and people, providing necessary information on the performance of the dam and detect problems at an early and preventable stage. The extent and nature of instrumentation depends not only on the complexity of dam and the size of the reservoir but also on the potential for loss of life and property downstream. This information is critical for the dam’s owner who is directly responsible for any consequences of its failure.
