Instrumentation is used to monitor in-service performance of any kind of structure, such as bridges, tunnels and building structures. This provides an early warning of potential failures, allowing time for safe evacuation of the area and implementation of remedial action. Applus+ provides continuous monitoring services using optic fiber and risk minimisation measures.
In this free live webinar, we will look at the benefits of Optic Fiber in Instrumentation and Monitoring services.
Luis Alberto Jaén Pérez is the Service Line Director for Construction Services in the Applus+ Group and he will be joined by a guest speaker, Pedro A. Calderón.
