Fiber optics provide the long-term stability required for structural health monitoring.
Safeguard structural integrity
While the size and complexity of modern infrastructure continue to increase, existing constructions are starting to require extra care. Detecting damage and overstress in bridges, tunnels and buildings early on allows for preventive repairs, avoiding catastrophic failure. Maintaining the structural integrity of power stations or offshore installations is equally critical.
For the most demanding industries
This is why fiber optic sensing is perfectly suited for structural health monitoring in contexts such as:
- crack and metal fatigue detection
- load sensing for traffic control
- monitoring suspension cable deformations
- detection of cracks and leakage
- monitoring the integrity of high voltage line towers
- preventing equipment failure
Oil & gas installations
- monitoring oil rig integrity
- monitoring in-well temperature and pressure
- monitoring pipelines
- monitoring gas turbines
Reliable retrofit solutions
Easy to install, reduced wiring complexity, even over long distances
Fiber optic sensors can be embedded in, or mounted on, steel, asphalt, composite or concrete surfaces. The fact that a single fiber contains multiple sensors significantly reduces the wiring outlay as compared to electrical sensors.
