Title: SYSTEM FOR CONTINUOUSLY MONITORING THE INTEGRITY OF A STRUCTURE OR INFRASTRUCTURE
Abstract:
A system for monitoring the integrity of a structure or infrastructure, such as a building, a group of buildings, a bridge, a road, or a similar structure or infrastructure, comprising: sensor means operatively connected with the structure or infrastructure to detect at intervals of at least one value of at least one parameter related to the structure or infrastructure vibration; and data processing means operatively connected to the sensor means configured to compare at least one value detected by the sensor means or a value calculated by at least one other comparable value therewith in order to calculate a check value. The data processing means are configured to generate an alarm signal in case the check value is greater than or lower than at least one pre-determined or calculable threshold check value.
