Early detection of ageing processes
Ageing processes of the materials, changes in use, varying static and dynamic loads or environmental influences can lead to increased repair costs. By means of suitable monitoring measures – Structural monitoring – changing building conditions can be recorded and assessed in time.
Detecting the weak points of a structure and adjusting the measuring technology
In order to adjust the measuring technology and position the sensors accordingly it is especially important to locate the weak points of a structure in advance. At the same time, costs and therefore the type and number of sensors should be kept within reasonable limits.
This considerably minimises the risk of damages, which could have catastrophic consequences for users and operators.
Low costs compared to possible consequential costs
In general, the costs of using such a monitoring system are low in comparison to the potential costs that could arise in the event of damages or even accidents. It is therefore a worthwhile investment!
