Seismographs are instruments that are used to measure and record earthquakes and other seismic events. In structural health monitoring, seismographs can be used to measure the ground motion caused by earthquakes and other seismic events, and to monitor the response of structures to these events.
Seismographs are often used in structural health monitoring by placing one or two of them in strategic locations around a structure when in remote locations. These sensors can then measure the ground motion caused by earthquakes and other seismic events and transmit this information back to engineers, who can analyze the data and determine the best course of action to address any problems.
Overall, seismographs are an important tool in structural health monitoring because they can provide valuable information about the response of structures to earthquakes and other seismic events, helping engineers to identify potential problems before they become serious and ensuring the safety and reliability of the structures they are responsible for maintaining.« Back to list
