  • The vibration monitoring evolution

    A recent report from Markets & Markets estimated that demand for vibration monitoring systems will reach nearly $1.5 billion by 2020. That’s a staggering increase of around 50% compared with today – with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 6.5%. Is this growth a big surprise though? As a company that has seen first hand the rapid evolution of the ...

  • Opening the envelope on bearing vibration

    A sophisticated signal processing technique can help to pinpoint bearing failure at an early stage. Chris Hansford, Managing Director at Hansford Sensors, explains. Experienced operators can often tell if a machine is not working properly, on the basis that is does not ‘sound right’. The same principle can be applied – using modern electronics – to identify the exact cause ...

  • Performance of damage detection algorithms for health monitoring of joints in steel frame structures using vibration–based techniques

    Steel frame structures are widely used for industrial buildings, bridges, off–shore structures, etc., due to their high reliability and less construction time. In these types of structures, beams and columns are often connected by welding or fasteners forming rigid joints. In this study, viability of several damage detection algorithms for health monitoring of joints in planar frame structures ...

  • Construction and Civil Infrastructures Monitoring Systems

    Civil infrastructures are usually monitored through its whole life cycle. SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) technologies enable the estimation of the structural state and detection of structural change that affects the performance of a structure. Two discriminating factors in SHM are the time-scale of the change (how quickly the state changes) and the severity of the change. These factors ...
