Optics11
Optics11 will explain the sensing concept of their system and demonstrate the sensitivity by recording sounds with fiber optics and play that over the speakers. Click here to access Optics11 Website.
Structures And Composites Laboratory (SACL) (Joint: Chalmers University of Technology)
Digital Twins Lab, a joint research team from Stanford (USA) and Chalmers (Sweden), will demonstrate the creation of a Digital Twin for a concrete beam in a live demo. Digital Twin of an infrastructure is a living digital simulation that brings all the data & models together, and updates itself from multiple sources to represent its physical counterpart.

Acellent
Acellent will demonstrate how its SHM system enables mine owners to detect damage on their mining equipment and receive damage alerts any time, anywhere in the world. Click here to access Acellent Website.

The focus of the workshop is to promote applications of SHM technologies and to encourage interaction between industry and academia. We place significant emphasis on industrial applications including aerospace, ground transportation systems, and civil infrastructures. Your company plays a leading role in this field and is cordially invited to participate in a special session, SHM in Action, which provides a unique opportunity to combine product demonstration with podium discussion.

How to participate:

Here is the link to sign up. The deadline to apply is Aug 15, 2019. A short description of the demo is required. More information about SHM in action is given below.

Who can participate:

  • workshop exhibitors
  • workshop presenters
  • workshop participants
  • Objective:

    To show how a structural health monitoring (SHM) system practically works. This presentation can be additional to exhibits or oral presentations and is specifically targeted to underline the practical aspect of the SHM.

    Motivation:

    There is significant recent progress in SHM technology for a variety of applications. These presentations will focus on how these SHM systems work in practice in terms of installation, handling, interpretation, and robustness for the following applications:

  • operational loads monitoring
  • damage detection
  • health monitoring
  • life-cycle management
  • The session targets:

  • showing the audience how SHM works in various applications
  • better understanding the practical issues of different SHM systems
  • getting further feedback and requirements expressed from current and potential SHM users
  • letting SHM users to share their experience
  • Procedure:

    The session intends to show as many demonstration cases as possible, addressing the aspects mentioned below:

  • the way the monitoring system and the test is operated
  • type of sensors and actuators (if required) and their way of attachment to components, linkage to the signal generation and acquisition unit, etc.
  • signal generation and acquisition unit as hardware and how it operates
  • the way input data are entered and sensor data are received and how the result is presented during the test
  • procedure for sensor signal processing
  • the 'man-machine interface' such as data input and output display
  • component(s) tested, area/volume to be monitored, loading procedure and the damage initially observed by conventional means of non-destructive testing
  • characteristics of the system such as weight, size, volume, reliability, cost, etc.
  • Each presentation is allowed no more than 5 minutes through a video, internet or a hardware live demonstration only, which will be directly displayed to the audience on a large screen. It is mandatory that the SHM system is shown in action. Static displays are not acceptable and live demonstrations are preferred over videos. Each presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A session where the SHM demonstrators will answer questions from the audience.

    The test cases being presented can be either based on self-developed or purchased SHM systems. The source of the SHM hardware is eligible to be mentioned but no further advertisement from or about the supplier of the SHM system will be accepted.


    Structures And Composites Laboratory (SACL) (Joint: Chalmers University of Technology)

    Digital Twins Lab, a joint research team from Stanford (USA) and Chalmers (Sweden), will demonstrate the creation of a Digital Twin for a concrete beam in a live demo. Digital Twin of an infrastructure is a living digital simulation that brings all the data & models together, and updates itself from multiple sources to represent its physical counterpart. We will demonstrate an innovative solution in which next-generation Autonomous Data Collection, Data-Driven models and Physics-Based models are integrated to a Digital Twin framework to create a comprehensive SHM system for condition assessment of infrastructures. The will demo include: (1) Data Collection: real-time 3D scanning of a cracked concrete beam using a drone equipped with a 3D structured-light scanner, (2) Crack Detection: real-time crack detection using an AI-inspired crack detection algorithm, and (3) Simulation: real-time incorporation of the detected crack into FE model, and real-time FE simulation.

    Seismic structural health monitoring of structures is critical to not only provide early warning of seismic motions but also enable rapid structural condition assessment for informed decisions. Wireless smart sensors are an attractive alternative to expensive and difficult-to-deploy wired monitoring systems, as they significantly reduce deployment and operating costs. However, seismic structural monitoring using smart sensors faces obstacles that include stringent energy constraints and limited transmission bandwidth. We will showcase an intelligent wireless system for real-time seismic monitoring of civil infrastructure. The event-driven system consists of three main components: ultralow-power on-demand sensing prototypes, a high-throughput live streaming framework, and a graphical user interface for real-time damage assessment. We will demonstrate that the system can detect seismic motions, provide high-quality synchronized data, and present damage assessment in real-time. Specifically, the demo will include: (1) real-time interstory drift estimation of a 6-story building model under a seismic event, and (2) sudden damage detection of the building model under a seismic event.
