STRUCTURAL DIAGNOSIS AND STRUCTURAL MONITORING
INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR STRUCTURAL MONITORING
Measuring the changes in crack widths on coupling joints
between segments of a freeway bridge on the German
A7 freeway. The signals from the inductive travel sensors
at each coupling joint are captured by the e.bloxx A6
modules, conditioned and transferred to the control
point via a serial RS485 bus.
Dam monitoring at Lüner Lake (Austria)
Long term as well as temporary monitoring of structures such
as bridges, dams and buildings forms the basis for structural
diagnosis as well as for structural supervision. The condition
of the structure can be determined using various measured
variables and, after definition of the criteria, evaluated and
appropriate action taken. Classic examples here are permanent
monitoring of expansion joints on a freeway bridge requiring
renovation, or monitoring a dam for minimal changes in
inclination.
But even during the construction phase it may be necessary
to monitor certain parameters. These include particularly
temperatures (hydration) and expansion on concrete
elements as well as displacement.
Another segment of structural diagnostics is temporary
monitoring during work in the immediate vicinity of the
structure. This includes work such as major earthwork or
demolishing adjacent structures in the immediate vicinity.
As a matter of principle these include static parameters
such as expansion values, loads, displacement values and
temperature as well as dynamic variables such as vibration
and concussion.
In the attempt to balance safety requirements and cost
consciousness, monitoring structures and diagnosis of the
structural condition is a proven means of simultaneously
achieving cost efficiency and safety. Unfortunately there are
repeated examples of severe damage, which could have
been avoided by proper monitoring. This is particularly
dramatic when human injury is involved.
In addition to ruggedness, measuring systems for structural
monitoring require that all relevant signals be captured quickly,
locally, precisely in a stable manner, that they automatically
perform more or less extensive data reduction operations (mini-
mum, maximum, standard deviation, mean and limit) and store
and visualize the measured as well as the calculated data as well
as transferring it worldwide to a control point, e.g. via Internet.

Continuous monitoring of European Cup Stadium in Braga, Portugal: Synchronous capture of over 100 signals
from remote measuring points at a rate of 250 Hz. The vibration values for the suspended grandstands, forces in
the steel cables between the grandstands and meteorological values are measured and evaluated.
The size of the structure makes central capture of the measured
signals virtually impossible. It is necessary to measure and
digitize the signals at a short distance from the sensor and
transfer them over a great distance to a central point using a
sturdy field bus. In spite of the remote locations, synchronous
capture of the measured data remains essential in order to
correctly interpret multiple axis vibration on a bridge using
correlating data.
The remote modules capture all standard sensor signals with
high accuracy, synchronously at measuring rates of up to
100 kHz and transfer the data to a controller via a serial
RS485 interface.
The most important features of the measuring
modules include:
Galvanic isolation of all channels,
power supply and interface
24 bit ADU resolution
Measuring rate up
to 100 kHz
Intelligent signal
conditioning
Can be synchronized
with test controller
Serial interface,
optional fiber

TRANSFERRING AND ARCHIVING MEASURED DATA
Transfer of measured data and evaluation results as well as
alarm messages is a primary requirement for structural
monitoring. The data reduction and alarm features make it
possible to communicate with a supervisor in previously
defined situations..
Communication possibilities
Ethernet as FTP server or FTP client
Modem via serial interface
VPN via rooter
Automatic Email notification with prepared
texts and data attachments
Access via Internet
Archiving data with test.node
If the monitoring system is incorporated in to a network
and the data is to be stored in a local PC or in a database,
the test.node server software is the right solution. The data is
transferred or copied from the controller; statistic calculations
are preformed, the data is converted to selected formats and
saved in a directory on any server in the network. The data
can be visualized using the test.viewer. test.node is in use,
for example, for monitoring the Reichs Bridge in Vienna, the
pump storage at the KOPS II power plant and in many wind
power stations.

CAPTURE AT CONTROLLER LEVEL
Such remote setups allow the individual measuring
modules, which may be up to several hundred meters away,
to be connected to a test controller using four serial lines.
This controller includes the following features:
Synchronization of remote measuring modules
Synchronization of a number of test controllers via internal
or external signal (e.g. IRIG)
Time stamp for each data package per cycle
Data buffering for block transfer
Measured data storage capacity approx. 30 million values,
expandable with external USB memory
Configuration as FTP server or FTP client
Various interfaces and wide variety of
communication possibilities
Calculation, logical operations and control,
Memory organization for saving
measured or calculated data
Calculation of statistical data such as minimum,
maximum, mean and standard deviation
Monitoring of any type of data to ensure that
limits are not exceeded, including alarm
The 5 abutments of the Millau Viaduct are equipped with a remote measuring system,
consisting of measuring modules and one e.pac test controller. The entire system is synchronized
by a GPS signal, allowing processes such as vibration curves to be recorded for the entire bridge.

STORAGE OF MEASURED DATA IN SYSTEM
Kapazität des Datenspeichers
Internal store approx. 30,000,000 values
50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 16 hours
USB flash, e.g. 4 GBytes, approx 1,000,000,000 values
50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 23 days
USB HDD, e.g. 200 GBytes, approx 50,000,000,000 values
50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 3 years
Structural monitoring does not always allow measured
and calculated data to be saved on a PC. T he e.pac DL
test controller has memory capacity for approx. 30 million
measured values, and a USB interface allows virtually
unlimited add-on capacity using common storage mediums.
The memory can be subdivided in to a maximum of
4 partitions. Various types of data can be assigned to
these partitions or the partitions can be configured with
various measuring rates and triggering conditions. If a USB
storage device is not available, the internal storage is used
automatically; when a USB memory is plugged in, all data
can be transferred or alternatively copied to this memory.
This can be accomplished with or without access protection.

Structure monitoring GANTNER INSTRUMENTS FRANCE

  • 1. Application Solutions CERTAINTY BY RECORDING AND MONITORING STATISTICS Intelligent solutions for structural monitoring
  • 2. STRUCTURAL DIAGNOSIS AND STRUCTURAL MONITORING INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR STRUCTURAL MONITORING Measuring the changes in crack widths on coupling joints between segments of a freeway bridge on the German A7 freeway. The signals from the inductive travel sensors at each coupling joint are captured by the e.bloxx A6 modules, conditioned and transferred to the control point via a serial RS485 bus. Dam monitoring at Lüner Lake (Austria) Long term as well as temporary monitoring of structures such as bridges, dams and buildings forms the basis for structural diagnosis as well as for structural supervision. The condition of the structure can be determined using various measured variables and, after definition of the criteria, evaluated and appropriate action taken. Classic examples here are permanent monitoring of expansion joints on a freeway bridge requiring renovation, or monitoring a dam for minimal changes in inclination. But even during the construction phase it may be necessary to monitor certain parameters. These include particularly temperatures (hydration) and expansion on concrete elements as well as displacement. Another segment of structural diagnostics is temporary monitoring during work in the immediate vicinity of the structure. This includes work such as major earthwork or demolishing adjacent structures in the immediate vicinity. As a matter of principle these include static parameters such as expansion values, loads, displacement values and temperature as well as dynamic variables such as vibration and concussion. In the attempt to balance safety requirements and cost consciousness, monitoring structures and diagnosis of the structural condition is a proven means of simultaneously achieving cost efficiency and safety. Unfortunately there are repeated examples of severe damage, which could have been avoided by proper monitoring. This is particularly dramatic when human injury is involved. In addition to ruggedness, measuring systems for structural monitoring require that all relevant signals be captured quickly, locally, precisely in a stable manner, that they automatically perform more or less extensive data reduction operations (mini- mum, maximum, standard deviation, mean and limit) and store and visualize the measured as well as the calculated data as well as transferring it worldwide to a control point, e.g. via Internet. 2
  • 3. REMOTE MEASURING POINTS Capture of meteorological parameters mechanical values position values electrical variables thermal values 650 m Continuous monitoring of European Cup Stadium in Braga, Portugal: Synchronous capture of over 100 signals from remote measuring points at a rate of 250 Hz. The vibration values for the suspended grandstands, forces in the steel cables between the grandstands and meteorological values are measured and evaluated. The size of the structure makes central capture of the measured signals virtually impossible. It is necessary to measure and digitize the signals at a short distance from the sensor and transfer them over a great distance to a central point using a sturdy field bus. In spite of the remote locations, synchronous capture of the measured data remains essential in order to correctly interpret multiple axis vibration on a bridge using correlating data. The remote modules capture all standard sensor signals with high accuracy, synchronously at measuring rates of up to 100 kHz and transfer the data to a controller via a serial RS485 interface. The most important features of the measuring modules include: Galvanic isolation of all channels, power supply and interface 24 bit ADU resolution Measuring rate up to 100 kHz Intelligent signal conditioning Can be synchronized with test controller Serial interface, optional fiber optic conductor 10…30 VDC power supply 3
  • 4. TRANSFERRING AND ARCHIVING MEASURED DATA Transfer of measured data and evaluation results as well as alarm messages is a primary requirement for structural monitoring. The data reduction and alarm features make it possible to communicate with a supervisor in previously defined situations.. Communication possibilities Ethernet as FTP server or FTP client Modem via serial interface VPN via rooter Automatic Email notification with prepared texts and data attachments Access via Internet Archiving data with test.node If the monitoring system is incorporated in to a network and the data is to be stored in a local PC or in a database, the test.node server software is the right solution. The data is transferred or copied from the controller; statistic calculations are preformed, the data is converted to selected formats and saved in a directory on any server in the network. The data can be visualized using the test.viewer. test.node is in use, for example, for monitoring the Reichs Bridge in Vienna, the pump storage at the KOPS II power plant and in many wind power stations. Ethernet TCP/IP Serial RS-232/RS-485 VPN/E-MailEthernet TCP/IP Serial RS-232/RS-485 VPN/E-Mail TRANSFERRING AND ARCHIVING MEASURED DATA Data Vertikal.sit = (output) channel 1/1 = node 1 +X a[m/sec²] 20 -20 -30 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 t [sec] spectrum 8 6 4 2 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 f [Hz] Data Vertikal.sit = (output) channel 1/1 = node 1 +X a[m/sec²] 20 -20 -30 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 t [sec] spectrum 8 6 4 2 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 f [Hz]   Synchronized capture of acceleration rates allows correlation of the measured data. INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR STRUCTURAL MONITORING 6
  • 5. CAPTURE AT CONTROLLER LEVEL Such remote setups allow the individual measuring modules, which may be up to several hundred meters away, to be connected to a test controller using four serial lines. This controller includes the following features: Synchronization of remote measuring modules Synchronization of a number of test controllers via internal or external signal (e.g. IRIG) Time stamp for each data package per cycle Data buffering for block transfer Measured data storage capacity approx. 30 million values, expandable with external USB memory Configuration as FTP server or FTP client Various interfaces and wide variety of communication possibilities Calculation, logical operations and control, Memory organization for saving measured or calculated data Calculation of statistical data such as minimum, maximum, mean and standard deviation Monitoring of any type of data to ensure that limits are not exceeded, including alarm The 5 abutments of the Millau Viaduct are equipped with a remote measuring system, consisting of measuring modules and one e.pac test controller. The entire system is synchronized by a GPS signal, allowing processes such as vibration curves to be recorded for the entire bridge. INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR STRUCTURAL MONITORING 4
  • 6. STORAGE OF MEASURED DATA IN SYSTEM Kapazität des Datenspeichers Internal store approx. 30,000,000 values 50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 16 hours USB flash, e.g. 4 GBytes, approx 1,000,000,000 values 50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 23 days USB HDD, e.g. 200 GBytes, approx 50,000,000,000 values 50 Measuring channels at 10 Hz: Storage time approx. 3 years Structural monitoring does not always allow measured and calculated data to be saved on a PC. T he e.pac DL test controller has memory capacity for approx. 30 million measured values, and a USB interface allows virtually unlimited add-on capacity using common storage mediums. The memory can be subdivided in to a maximum of 4 partitions. Various types of data can be assigned to these partitions or the partitions can be configured with various measuring rates and triggering conditions. If a USB storage device is not available, the internal storage is used automatically; when a USB memory is plugged in, all data can be transferred or alternatively copied to this memory. This can be accomplished with or without access protection. Total length 2460 m Height up to 243 m int. Flash 3 meteo values Arithmetic: min, max, mean, st_dev buffer 16 MB new values int. Flash 1 raw values int. Flash 2 meteo values int.
