Design and validation of structural monitoring systems, employing accelerometers based on MEMS technology, for the control of dynamic events but also inclinations, subsidence and the opening of cracks.

The continuous operation of civil structures and infrastructures, such as viaducts, bridges, airports and dams mandates diligent, yet cost effective, strategies for the assurance of structural efficiency with a high degree of safety.These issues become take on even greater relevance when structures may have suffered damage due to traumatic events such as earthquakes, making it necessary to accurately assess their structural integrity.In this context, modern structural protection technologies have evolved, such as systems addressing exceptional events (e.g. earthquakes), that require control systems capable of monitoring the overall behaviour of the structures, also under operational conditions, during their entire life cycle.
