Vibration Monitoring – Tunnel

Vibration based condition monitoring refers to the use of in situ non-destructive sensing and analysis of system characteristics –in the time, frequency or modal domains –for the purpose of detecting changes, which may indicate damage or degradation. In the field of civil engineering, monitoring systems have the potential to facilitate the more economical management and maintenance of modern infrastructure. This paper reviews the state of the art in vibration based condition monitoring with particular emphasis on structural engineering applications.


maxGEO has installed SYSCOM MR3000 systems for condition monitoring of several Tunnel refurbishment projects (Tunnel Amberg, Tunnel Chain Klagenfurt North, Tunnel Strengen).
