RISK MANAGEMENT, SECURITY AND STRUCTURAL STABILITY

Integration, analysis and smart management of data to produce information that aims to support and mitigate the risks and uncertainties associated with the monitoring of actives and structures.

Slope Health Monitoring System

Risk management, structural security and stability. Reaching these conditions is a challenge that entrepreneurs and those in charge of monitoring of geotechnical structures, seek to guarantee daily. To that end, a huge amount of data is generated from devices and instruments equipped with sensors that aim to gauge; assess the behavior of those structures. At a high reading frequency it is critical that this large amount of data can be properly managed through intelligent collection, integration, processing and analysis,so that as much information as possible can be extracted, generating knowledge and better supporting the decision making process.

The Slope Health Monitoring System (SHMS) is a modular platform for data integration,planning of monitoring and inspection activities and data analysis, which goal is to provide as much contextualized information as possible associated with its structures and assets, as its surroundings and also monitoring activities and field inspection in the shortest possible time – in order to minimize inherent operational and financial costs, and above all, offer more control and security over our clients operations.

Structure monitoring
Geotechnical and Assets

In the context of geotechnical risk management in dams and mines, it’s essential to have access to as much interpretable information as possible associated with its geotechnical structures and assets, as well as surroundings, also monitoring activities and field inspection. SHMS is a solution that was designed to meet these and other needs, offering greater control and security over managed structures and also minimizing operational and financial costs inherent to the enterprises.

Customized
to your reality

SHMS is widely customizable to the needs and characteristics of each client. Data can be originated from several geotechnical monitoring sources, such as automated instruments, manual instruments, radars, weather stations, satellites and others. Also the solution can be integrated with different existing technologies and systems on the client Automation and Information Technology infrastructures. SHMS integrates all data in a unified, standardized, easily accessible database allowing it to be extracted, processed and analyzed using the modules that make up the solution.

Integrate with your business

Depending on the customer’s needs, SHMS can be integrated with systems that support the venture, collecting information that can support and add value to the geotechnical monitoring and decision making process. Information from systems such as management, financial, CRM and others, can be obtained and cross-referenced with geotechnical monitoring data and information, optimizing even more the decision making.

SHMS Module Monitoring System

Data integrator

Responsible for integrating the sensors installed in the geotechnical structures in a unified and standardized database. Composed by a Data Synchronizer, responsible for providing the interfaces between SHMS and the various types of sensors and connections on a contextualized database in a Data Warehouse, providing a centralized repository for quick access to the large amount of data obtained.

Monitoring

Allows real time monitoring of sensor readings. This monitoring occurs with the georeferenced representation of the instruments in 2D or 3D models and their respective readings time series plots. Alarm parameters are set so that any behavior that is outside the defined ranges is automatically identified and alerts the ones in charge.

Statistical Analysis

Module where historical and future statistical analysis of the collected data are performed. It is possible to consult information about which sensors affect the rest, as well as quantitative and qualitative analysis of this interaction, added to descriptive analysis, trends with classifications, grouping of similar series, among others. Also, predictions of future measurements with associated statistical uncertainties are made along with probable failure intervals.

Stability Analysis

It enables calculating the factor of safety of slopes, measuring how stable the structure is. Analysis is made through methods of limit equilibrium together with statistical methods, generating more accurate results. In addition, finite-element methods provide stress and strain simulations along the slope.

Geology​

Allows interpolation of geological and geotechnical properties of the soil from sampled data, through spatial interpolation algorithms (kriging, radial base functions, Inverse distance weighting,among others) which produce deterministic results and statistical analysis of the properties of interest.

Reports

Allows managers to obtain automatic reports from statistical analysis, field inspection and monitoring information, anomalies, corrective actions. All reports can be customized to each geotechnical structure.

Anomalies

Responsible for the registration and management of anomalies identified in the geotechnical structures of the venture. Anomalies can be prioritized, detailed and actions can be assigned to correct and solve problems. From mobile devices in the field, technicians can inspect and report the monitoring of the respective actions in progress.
