It presents detailed information on the methods of solutions to problems and the results obtained.
This free guidance provides identification and remediation solutions for Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) planks. RAAC has been used in building structures in the UK and Europe since the late 1950’s, most commonly as precast roof panels in flat roof construction, but in the 1990s structural deficiencies became apparent.
The presenters explored how the use of sensors and digital twins can support a structural engineer’s understanding of how their designs perform in real time, how this data can be used to impact future designs and how best to capture and maintain data to support the reuse of structures.
Our expert panel from London Structures Lab and BKWai explained what asset monitoring sensors are available at the moment, how the data needs to be processed to identify residual trends and what opportunities are available to engineers in the future. Through current research and real-time case studies, they also discussed the range of sensing systems available and the circumstances that they can be utilised.
