Civil & Geotechnical

Rugged and reliable structural monitoring solutions help ensure the safety and security of our civil and geotechnical infrastructure.  Luna’s measurement systems can provide all the real-time data needed for condition assessment or valuable data to validate new materials or construction processes.  

Civil

Overview

From aging structures or new construction incorporating innovative technologies, real-time condition monitoring is critical to the long-term safety and operation of bridges, tunnels, monuments, railways and pipelines. 

Versatile, distributed fiber optic sensing systems powered by Luna's HYPERION and ODiSI measurement platforms, deliver accurate and dependable structural health data by employing multiple optical technologies using a single instrument to measure strain, temperature, displacement and acceleration.

  • Monitoring of bridge structures and roadways
  • Geotechnical monitoring
  • Material and structural characterization
  • Fatigue monitoring 
  • Dynamic structural analysis

 

Explore Key Solutions below to learn how Luna's systems are powering a wide range of monitoring systems across many industries and applications.

Key Solutions

Dam
  • Structural Health Monitoring

    Structural health monitoring for civil structures, such as buildings, bridges and tunnels, is constantly changing as structures are built in harsher environments, with larger spans, and with requirements to withstand more extreme impacts or more intense natural disasters. Real-time, active monitoring of the conditions is critical to the long-term safety of these systems. Luna’s rugged fiber optic sensing systems provide continuous, enduring, reliable and accurate measurements of hundreds of optical strain, temperature, acceleration and displacement sensors.
