Patented Innovative Monitoring Technology for Bridges Industry - Construction & Construction Materials

SoundPrint is a patented innovative monitoring technology that can detect and locate failures in high-strength steel wire, strand or cable through continuous, non-intrusive remote monitoring.

With SoundPrint, bridge owners and engineers finally have a tool that helps ensure the long-termintegrity of post-tensioned, pre-tensioned, suspension and cable-stayed bridges. SoundPrint detects and locates tensioned wire failures through continuous, non-intrusive remote monitoring.

Because it continuously monitors for failure of tensioned steel elements, SoundPrint saves money on other bridge inspection and NDE techniques. Once SoundPrint has generated an understanding of the frequency and location of wire failures, other investigative techniques can be more cost-effectively applied to further evaluate the extent of deterioration. Information generated by the system can be integrated into the owner’s Bridge Management System
