Sensequake is the world leader in structural health monitoring and assessment technologies
combining sensors, A.I. and advanced data analysis to provide accurate structural evaluations. They develop software and hardware to provide a turnkey solution for bridges, buildings, ports, dams and infrastructure worldwide.
Their patented technology performs integrity evaluations due to aging or natural hazards solely based on data collected from highly-sensitive vibration sensors without structural drawings - saving time, effort and money - all while providing superior results. Smart databases are created to determine structural changes in integrity over time.
Applications of Sensequake
Find the real natural frequencies, mode shapes and damping ratios of the current, as-is condition of the structure
Track long-term PPVs - especially useful near construction sites or for highly-sensitive equipment / structures
Using Sensequake wireless sensors for a few hours on-site, evaluate integrity to prove health or detect and locate damage
Monitor a structure's stiffness periodically or permanently to detect changes using A.I. and advanced algorithms
Determine integrity between building sections and extract floor, roof, wall and foundation properties and flexibility
Using Sensequake's patented methodology, obtain seismic demand parameters without finite element models or building drawings
Supply response spectra at any building location to provide component-level damage evaluations
Compare the generated seismic demands with codes such as FEMA HAZUS and P58 to generate repair time and damage cost estimates
Increased reliability and accuracy
No need for detailed engineering plans and assumptions
Rapid data collection within few hours
Optimized retrofit schemes for more reliable and cost-efficient structures
Results based on actual data from sensors
No need for finite element models

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"Ambient noise study proved to be a very efficient tool for the seismic response evaluation of the Centre Block, a primary heritage building of the Canadian Parliamentary Precinct in Ottawa. It highlighted, at an early stage, several aspects of the building response to seismic loads, aspects which will require special consideration during the design phase. At the same time, the ambient noise study was used for the calibration of the seismic analysis computer model developed by the structural consultants. Sensequake provided timely professional services for the test planning, data collecting and post-processing, working diligently on a very complex structural framing and many site constraints."

"Sensquake direct sensing-based seismic evaluation of structural and non-structural components rather than finite element models helped us to identify the most vulnerable locations in the building and calibrate our finite element models to design the most reliable retrofit scheme. In one of our major projects, the technology detected structural characteristics and floor in-plane flexibility that was not visible through traditional methodologies.
This technology will allow our customers to establish a smart database of their existing portfolio of structures allowing them to accurately monitor any changes in the future and cost-efficiently optimize retrofit plans across their portfolio. We look forward to working with Sensequake again."
"The technology advantage presented by Sensequake is revolutionary. Their approach dramatically improves the viability of conducting asset portfolio seismic assessments, both from an initial and ongoing assessment point of view. Their ability to assess a facility regardless of its age and the state of its documentation in a non-destructive and non-intrusive manner is critically important. Their ability to integrate their results with a structural finite element model ensures that this model is realistic and that this model has been cost-optimized for the required performance."
