Acquire data on the behavior of structures and intervene promptly in case of anomalies | usBIM | ACCA software

Acquire data on the behavior of structures and intervene promptly in case of anomalies or failures

The collection of data and information on the behaviour of structures under external actions is important to ensure the safety and durability of infrastructures, especially for those that are subject to strong stresses such as bridges, roads, dams etc.

With usBIM the data acquisition takes place through the use of sensors that measure variables such as wind pressure, rain, temperature and traffic etc. The data are:

  • acquired with a sampling frequency of 200 Hz;
  • subjected to a pre-treatment (elimination of the effects of noise, detection and elimination of "spikes", elimination of drifts from scratch, control of the correctness of the acquisition and validation of the data);
  • transformed into the quantities related to the variables identified as the monitoring objective;
  • analysed to determine the state of the structure and identify any problems;
  • used to develop preventive maintenance solutions.

In addition, usBIM allows you to identify ongoing degradation processes, highlighted by unexpected structural responses to certain external stresses. The comparison of the acquired values with the historical data allows to evaluate whether the detected discrepancies are temporary or if they indicate a structural anomaly in progress.

The acquisition and processing of this data makes it possible to constantly monitor the health of the structure and to intervene promptly in case of problems, improving security and prolonging the life of the infrastructure.

Enrich BIM model of the infrastructure with data obtained from IOT sensors and GIS information | usBIM | ACCA software

Enrich the BIM model of the infrastructure with data obtained from IOT sensors and GIS information

With usBIM you integrate the data obtained from IOT devices directly on the BIM model. In this way the BIM model "comes to life", changing the characteristics based on the data that each sensor transmits. You have a dashboard with a real-time display on the digital twin that provides an immediate view of the status of the sensors and any critical issues.

Structural monitoring activities are made even simpler thanks to the integration of BIM and IOT with GIS technology. With usBIM:

  • visualize the infrastructure on a geographical map;
  • geolocate  the sensors;
  • manage geospatial digital twins of buildings and infrastructures.

The combination of these technologies allows to monitor the status of complex infrastructure systems, receive real-time alerts on dangerous situations at the territorial level, have access to infrastructure data in real time through the GIS and optimize decision-making in areas such as asset management, urban planning and infrastructure monitoring.

Constantly monitor state of the asset and promptly intervene with preventive maintenance activities | usBIM | ACCA software

Constantly monitor the state of the asset and promptly intervene with preventive maintenance activities

Constant monitoring of the state of the asset is particularly important for critical infrastructures, such as bridges, dams, roads etc where it is essential to ensure maximum user safety and prevent the risk of structural failure.

With usBIM you can monitor the status of a facility in real time and quickly identify any structural problems, such as cracks or breakages, so you can schedule preventive maintenance interventions in a timely manner.

Thanks to reporting and analysis features, you get periodic reports with images, description, graphic drawings, monitoring system diagrams, control protocol and emergency management manual. The structural health monitoring software also allows the management of alarms, with the possibility of preparing a control protocol that defines the contingent limit states for the structure, the methods of communication of alert situations, the actions to be taken in the different possible alarm situations and the organizational chart of the employees involved in the management of the emergency.

What you need to know about Bridge Inspection Software

A software for structural health monitoring is a tool that allows you to monitor the status of a structure in real time, collecting data through sensors installed on the structure itself.

These sensors can detect various structural parameters, such as deformation, vibration, pressure and temperature.

The data collected by the sensors are then processed by the software, which presents them in a clear and intuitive way through graphs, maps and personalized reports.

The objective of a SHM software is to promptly identify any structural problems, such as cracks, breakages or deformations, in order to schedule preventive maintenance interventions.

In addition, the use of a SHM software allows you to constantly monitor the state of the structure over time, identifying any changes in the condition of the structure and preventing more serious problems.

The main functions of a structural health monitoring software include the constant monitoring of the state of the structure, the timely identification of problems, the planning of maintenance interventions, the improvement of safety and the reduction of maintenance costs.

A structural health monitoring software can be easily integrated with other engineering and maintenance solutions, such as infrastructure management systems.

The integration of a SHM software with other systems makes it possible to optimize the planning of maintenance interventions and improve infrastructure safety.

For example, if a structural problem is detected through the SHM software, the infrastructure management system can automatically schedule a preventive maintenance intervention.

In addition, the integration of the SHM software with other systems allows you to create a complete picture of the state of the infrastructure, including both the data collected by the sensors and other important information, such as information on the historical maintenance of the structure.
