Field-Testing

The Carleton lab boasts extensive field instrumentation and analysis capabilities, both for static and dynamic applications. The lab’s areas of expertise encompass the following instrumentation types, for both a short and extended periods of time:

  • Static and dynamic strain instrumentation of large civil structures
  • Multi-point autonomous GPS-synchronized triaxial acceleration instrumentation
  • Multi-point differential GPS displacement instrumentation
  • Modal analysis of large civil structures, including natural frequencies, mode shapes, and damping estimations
  • Low and high-amplitude vibration sensing, from DC to high frequency
