Smart Structure Health Monitoring

Fiber optic pressure, strain, linear displacement, and temperature sensor for structural health monitoring.

Opsens Solutions fiber optic strain and deformation sensors are potentially a cost-effective approach to meet long term operational requirements, and to reduce maintenance costs.

The inherent benefits of fiber optic point sensing technology are its highly sensitivity, stability and accuracy.  In addition, they are not affected by external environment, large temperature variation and transversal strain.   Fiber optic sensor enables in-situ detection of structural strain, enable timely preventive action to reduce structure life cycle cost, improve safety and reliability, and extend operational life cycle.  Immune to adverse interference such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) and lightning, fiber optic sensor is able to efficiently and accurately detect parametric changes at different locations of structure, effectively monitoring the structural health and integrity of infrastructures. s.

ROAD STRUCTURE AND PAVEMENT FIBER OPTIC MONITORING SOLUTIONS

Dedicated fiber optic deformation, load, strain, and displacement sensors for pavement monitoring.

In the context of aging transportation infrastructures, the need for a better understanding of pavement behaviour at middle age (before and during distress manifestation) requires good quality data on the mechanical response of existing pavement. Strain gauges installed during pavement construction typically have a short service life and cannot be used reliably to monitor pavement response after a few months. Opsens Solutions innovative Strain In Motion solution is installed with a 100% success rate in existing pavement without disrupting stress fields in the bound layers.
