Structural Dynamics Monitoring

When it comes to structural behavior, there is a concern about the infrastructure environment. The dynamics of the systems influence and damage the elements on infrastructure.
Smart motors® web-based solution provides 24/7 condition monitoring and it allows to know abrupt changes in structural dynamics with an impact on the availability and security of the network.

Adaptable to any project dimension

From basic geometries to complex cross sections.

Simple and fast installation

Installation satisfies all railway certifications.

A unique platform for the whole network

Reduce time spent on infrastructure maintenance.

Achieve higher level of reliability

There is an important difference between knowing nothing about your infrastructure and having a constant control.

Why structural
dynamics monitoring?


The enormous and variable loads supported by the infrastructure causes wear and damage in the structure. What if we could avoid load tests and hard inspections?

Structural Dynamics monitoring is a new method of assessing the condition of existing elements in railway’s infrastructure. The solution is based on vibration monitoring data obtained from smart motors® sensors.

Monitoring the performance of the natural structure will allow you to take the required actions in a reasonable time.

Functionalities

Railway operation requires many different types of civil works and structures to ensure their reliability. Structural behavior is one of the main priorities for operators.

Structural dynamics is a solution focused on railway infrastructure maintenance. Designed to monitor different structural elements, such as railway bridges, rail superstructures, slopes or turnovers. This solution has changed the traditional maintenance approach of expensive load tests and inspections. 

  • Data visualitzation
  • Analytics
  • Failure's detection
  • Reports and Alarms

Special sensors for structural dynamics

  1. 01 It uses smart motors® signaling monitoring network architecture already in place, reducing installation costs.

  1. 02 Adaptable to different types of infrastructures and dynamics behaviors.

  1. 03 Accomplishing all certifications required in the railway’s environment.

  1. 04 Check the data directly in smart motors® Digitalization platform, SAVANA, or any other destination that you prefer.

Structural dynamics installation

 

Installation is simple. Sensors are placed on a previously studied location.

The solution consists of three elements:

THE SENSORS

Which take care of data acquisition and processing.

COMMUNICATION TRANSCEIVER

Which can be installed within a radio up to 50 meters. It manages communication and sends data to the server.

THE SERVER

Which, as in other solutions, can be a cloud server or a real server. Its function is to receive, save and process the data.
