Structural Health Monitoring
Structural health monitoring (SHM) from SGS — extend the life of your critical assets by monitoring them remotely, in real time.
As critical assets – such as bridges, cranes and civil structures – age, they become subject to degradation. Defects such as cracks can develop unnoticed and worsen over time. By the time defects are detected using conventional visual inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, it can be too late to prevent asset failure.
We offer a sensor-based SHM solution that provides continuous, real time monitoring of the health of your critical assets. This allows you to identify and respond to defects before they have a serious impact on your operation or your finances.
Protect Your Assets with 24/7 Real-Time, Sensor-Based Monitoring
Our remote, sensor-based solution is like having an NDT inspector onsite 24/7, without the added cost of human intervention. It uses an Internet of Things (IoT) ready system to continuously assess defects based on NDT standards. By enabling you to respond to defects before they become catastrophic, our solution reduces the risk of asset failure.
Continuous remote SHM helps you to minimise downtime and reduce maintenance costs throughout your asset’s life. We can provide you with a root cause analysis of a defect’s behaviour by monitoring its evolution while simultaneously tracking parameters such as temperature and local acceleration. This allows you to schedule preventive maintenance and assists you with operational and financial decision making.
