SHM system: basic package
of SHM system basic package
Operation principles of SHM system basic package are similar to those of the distributed structural health monitoring system:
- Outline the parameters to be controlled, select digital sensors for the parameters control in accordance with the applicable requirements.
- Find the suitable mounting area for installation of the digital sensors and the recorder. When choosing the mounting area locations, it is necessary to consider the cables to be connected to the digital sensors.
- Perform installation of the control system at the facility in accordance with the requirements specified in the operational documentation.
- Adjust settings, configure the digital devices included in the scope of the monitoring system, check visual representation of the controlled parameters on operator’s screen.
ZETLAB software enables visual representation of the controlled parameters in a user-friendly form, thus allowing to evaluate the necessity of works performance aimed at structural defects elimination and increasing the building’s safety.
SHM system basic package is an optimal solution for small structures operational condition evaluation.
It is recommended to select several control points for bearing capacity control in the case of large-scale buildings and industrial facilities.
You can find detailed information relating to system selection, equipment positioning, measuring lines design for distributed monitoring systems in the clause Structural health monitoring system.
