Guaranteeing the health of structures in order to sustain the city has been OSMOS's mission for over twenty years. A leader and pioneer in monitoring the structural health of buildings and civil engineering works, OSMOS defends an activist approach to prevention to better preserve it.
OSMOS monitors several thousand structures including the Champlain Bridge in Canada, Eurotunnel, the Orsay Museum, the Eiffel Tower, the Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona, the Beauvais Cathedral and the Stade de France.
The world of construction espouses major contemporary challenges. Building and managing structures means focussing on protecting existing buildings, ensuring efficient and responsible operations, while balancing issues of densification with those of development.
Schedule maintenance operations upstream and prioritize your actions: postpone a construction phase or initiate it when the time is right. Avoid additional costs related to emergency work and damage
The bending of 3 spans of the road bridge is monitored by 8 OSMOS Optical Strands installed on the top and bottom members of the steel frame. Each heavy vehicle passing through is recorded by the Expert System Acquisition, which allows the reconstruction of the evolution of the structure under the effect of each convoy : stresses magnitude in the material, estimation of broaches and identification of vibration modes.
