Application Brief: Structural Health Monitoring of Building Near Excavation Site
Industry: Engineering & Construction
Application: Structural Health Monitoring
Summary: In modern urban environments, heavy construction often must be conducted immediately adjacent to neighboring properties and structures that must remain open to business or residency during excavation and construction. Traditional surveying techniques allow for +/-5mm precision of displacement, but Dimetix laser distance sensor technology allows for measurements with sub-millimeter accuracy at distances up to 500m to detect any shift or displacement of structures. In today’s world of high-density construction sites, these systems provide a more accurate and precise method of protecting adjacent buildings and infrastructure against construction-based damage.
