Mooring bollards are subject to a dynamic load which stress its concrete foundation above the limits and eventually cause failure. Bollards failure can cause catastrophic events hence its regular monitoring is essential. The conventional inspection methods are lacking quantitative assessments which makes them insufficient. SHM Next advanced technology detects and monitors the actual load-bearing capacity of bollards. An array of purpose-designed sensors (Agent) with wireless connection can make a non-destructive quantitative assessment of load bearing capacity of bollards. The system can be used in-service or during proof-loading.
