We are developping a diagnostic kit for concrete structures.
For cost reasons, the contractors need to optimize the construction phases while ensuring the reliability of the structure.
The quality requirements are getting stronger and stronger and the maintenance must be cost effective.
Our goal is to provide a low cost on-line monitoring system for assessing the concrete quality from very early age, and to very long term.
Our aim is to help the contractors at preventing appearance of cracks during the construction phase
Our aim is to help the infrastructure operators
to ensure the reliability of the structure while optimizing the cost.
The system consists in ultrasonic measurements based on low-cost embedded piezoelectric transducers.
In a nutchell, the system relies on an emitter and a receiver. An ultrasonic wave is generated by the emitter and is caught by the receiver.
TweetCon is situated at the crossroads of the state-of-the-art of monitoring methods, set it all with one single monitoring system.
even in presence of formworks
which allows for stronger waves generation over longer paths
when the structure is is service,
underwater or in hazardous and dangerous places
which allows for the automotion and a better reproducibility
of the measurements
which allows for a better integration in the overal design and better protection of the transducers
from environmental and accidental attacks.
Our goal is to increase the structures lifetime and the efficiency of the maintenance programs.
Our solution can used in different types of application .
Long Term Monitoring
