A structural monitoring system has been developed for use on high value engineering structures, which is particularly suitable for use in remote locations where rare events such as accidental impacts, seismic activity or terrorist attack might otherwise go undetected. The system comprises a low power intelligent on-site data logger and a remote analysis computer that communicate with one another using the internet and mobile telephone technology. The analysis computer also generates e-mail alarms and maintains a web page that displays detected events in near real-time to authorised users. The application of the prototype system to pipeline monitoring is described in which the analysis of detected events is used to differentiate between impacts and pressure surges. The system has been demonstrated successfully and is ready for deployment.
