Apave and Sercel (a CGG subsidiary) have launched AP’Structure, an innovative SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) solution, that is the only one of its kind available in the European market.
With AP’Structure, operators can monitor the integrity of entire buildings and infrastructure in real time, receive warnings about irregularities and prolong the life cycle of the infrastructure. AP’Structure deploys S-lynks, a fully connected and autonomous wireless solution from Sercel for measuring structural vibration.
AP’Structure has been developed as a result of the partnership between Apave and Sercel, which brings together the strengths of both companies including:
- Sercel’s expertise as the world leader in seismic equipment, and the capabilities of its S-lynks solution for continuous structural monitoring. With its embedded ultra-sensitive QuietSeis sensor, S-lynks can measure a structure’s ambient noise signature without the requirement to restrict access. This fully connected, wireless system is self-sustaining and can be deployed on all types of structures. The recorded data is then streamed to the cloud for processing and is immediately accessible for remote analysis.
- Expert analysis and interpretation of the recorded monitoring data by Apave’s engineers and technicians using proprietary algorithms. This dynamic data is used to understand the behaviour of a structure, monitor its deterioration over time, trigger alerts if anomalies are detected that are not visible to the naked eye, and propose corrective measures.
