Structural health monitoring (SHM) makes it possible to understand, anticipate, and predict the behavior of parts that are subject to heavy mechanical loads (bridges, works of art, prototypes, etc.). Our teams meet SHM needs in industries such as aerospace, shipbuilding, mechanical engineering, and agriculture. We devise innovative instrumentation strategies and develop custom-made sensors that are both robust and cost-effective. All of our on-site instrumentation can be coupled with mechanical tests in the laboratory.
Our engineering and R&D services
Our R&D teams carry out needs-specific measuring, instrumentation, and real-time monitoring services. Our service is complete, from conducting extension measurements to using artificial intelligence to enhance predictive maintenance.
Innovative measurement strategies
We offer innovative, robust, and economical monitoring strategies by adapting existing technologies to your needs.
Benchmarking and state of the art
Choice of sensors: wired or wireless
Customized instrumentation and monitoring strategies
Creating custom sensors to meet your needs
Strategic choice of results analysis, with or without artificial intelligence
Extensometer measurements and strain measurements
Using various sensors to measure all physical values: strain gauges, fiber optics, image correlation, etc.
Deformation (wired or wireless), e.g., strain gauges
Torque: torque sensors, friction measurements
Load and weight: weighing sensors, etc.
On-site instrumentation and on-board measurements
Analyzing your structures’ behavior under mechanical loads and ingeniously monitoring their state of health.
Installing strain gauges and other extensometer sensors on different substrates (metal, composite, etc.)
