Fire Brigade Hall Saarlouis

BRIMOS® analysis

Assessment of the stays with BRIMOS® Structural Health Monitoring.

Subject of the current survey is the determination of the prestressing forces in the twelve ties of the roof trusses of the fire brigade hall Saarlouis. Trigger for the survey was the failure of one of the stays. This led to the question of the tension forces in the remaining eleven component parts.

On the basis of a non-destructive, dynamic measurement the actual prestress level in the stays was determined and therefore a relevant basis for an assessment of the current situation and the further procedure is ready for operation.
