Structural integrity monitoring

SoundPrint® offers building owners and engineers a tool that helps ensure the long-term integrity of post-tensioned concrete building structures.

Continuous, non-destructive and cost-effective

The tendon systems of post-tensioned concrete building structures, such as multi-storey commercial buildings and car-parks, are vulnerable to moisture ingress.

Such ingress, which can occur at any time, can cause corrosion-induced failures in these structures. Current non-destructive evaluation techniques are ineffective for evaluating the condition of post-tensioned systems. Furthermore, intrusive inspection techniques, while useful in the initial assessment of a structure, can only provide a sampling of the condition of the wire strands that form the tendons.

SoundPrint continuously monitors every wire strand in a building and will identify the time and location of their failures. Since SoundPrint can also determine the frequency of wire failures, statistical techniques can be used to estimate future rates of failure in different parts of a building.

Structural Engineering services are not currently offered in the State of Illinois.
