Physical stresses and long-term climatic factors can affect the integrity of many types of structures as they age. Cautus Geo can deliver structural health monitoring systems that continuously monitor and warn against any changes that may put the structure at risk.
Structural health monitoring systems can consist of a range of different sensor types and can be tailored to fit specific applications. Sensor types include tiltmeters, inclinometers, strain gauges, settlement monitors, joint meters, crack meters, load cells, piezometers and more. Data displays and alarms make it easy to see relative changes over time.
Types of structures that can benefit from long-term monitoring systems include:
- Retaining walls
- Other constructions
