AUSCULTATION, INSTRUMENTATION AND MONITORING
The test of all knowledge is experiment. Experiment is the sole judge of scientific “truth”'
Many times there is no procedure or sensor with a certain purpose, but this does not limit us to achieve it.
In collaboration with AMADE, EXIT and other companies in the sector, we develop sensor-based product lines initially as a support tool, and then turn them into a business lines with their own entity.
It is necessary to know the behaviour of a material in the face of loads, radiation, elements and other conditions; we can clarify unknowns in an experimental way and in a controlled environment before proceeding to its use.
3S’TECH has successfully applied these techniques, in situ and/or in laboratory conditions, to problems as diverse as the characterization of new and pre-existing concretes, the connection behavior between materials subjected to fatigue, the quantification of efforts in structures in use, etc.
Any action can be audited in real time, allowing problems to be anticipated and the most appropriate decision to be taken at any given time. This is where the use of sensors completes and efficiently quantifies the observations made by the technicians.
3S’TECH brings its experience and resources to the design, development and installation of systems for real-time monitoring of the mechanical behaviour of structural elements. This makes it possible to control the evolution of stresses and deformations, reduce the uncertainty of behaviour and thus preserve the safety of people and the physical integrity of structures and equipment.
An increasingly demanding market demands building elements with high quality standards. The economic cost of production, durability, response to aggressive environments or performance against dynamic effects and/or long-term fatigue, have become issues of paramount importance.
In 3S’TECH we pursue such excellence by applying identification, optimization and re-engineering techniques in the analysis of the prototypes; this ensures the reliability, viability and competitiveness of the final product.
Forensic engineering in the fields of construction and civil engineering helps to determine the possible causes of an accident or failure in a structure and assesses its behavior in the future, especially if there is an impact in legal terms.
The investigation of structural pathologies requires extensive experience in their auscultation. When a pathology appears in a structure, the use of numerical and experimental techniques, together with our instrumentation systems, will allow us to study the causes and consequences.
The structural stability in architectural heritage is of vital for their conservation. The study of pathologies in time results in the true magnitude of the problem and consequently the decision of the best corrective actions.
On the other hand, the location of many constructions of this nature, cause real problems to follow up the different effects in the elements to study.
3S’TECH has developed specific sensors and communication systems to monitor “LIVE” any reading of the building elements or the structures themselves, no matter how complicated the location of the construction to be studied may be.
Continuous surveillance for undefined time.
Load tests, search for pathologies, flat jack, thermographic imaging… We have experience in many types of interventions.

Data Acquisition ceases to be an important tool at the technical level if a thorough analysis is not performed and it is not interpreted appropriately.
The data acquisition, its analysis and subsequent correlation carried out by our senior technicians can define very clear parameters for definitive solutions.
3S’TECH, when required, can carry out specific instrumentation projects.
The definition of the whole architecture of the sensor system and the reading frequencies, must be the necessary and adequate for the collection and analysis of data for the final conclusions.
Our exhaustive data acquisition process is reflected in the reports we deliver, always accompanied by a thorough interpretation made by 3S’TECH’s Technical Experts.
3S’TECH reports are complete, explanatory and with explicit conclusions.
