TS9467: Using Structural Health Monitoring to Reduce Risks for Historical Buildings

Speaker: Gianluca Bacchiega (R&D, I.R.S. srl)


Historical buildings, bridges, and tunnels are susceptible to damage from environmental events such as earthquakes. Without information on how these thousand-year-old structures were designed, engineers traditionally rely on manual, visual inspections to perform maintenance and verify safe access. At this session, learn how civil infrastructure experts use the data from continuously monitored sensors to track the health of an ancient Roman amphitheater and a network of historical buildings. Discover the do's and don'ts for defining and integrating device components for structural health monitoring systems.
