How many sensors do I need for a structure?

The determination of the required number of sensors does not have a one-size-fits-all answer and is determined on a project-by-project basis. Each structure embodies its unique history, accompanied by individual weaknesses and risk factors.

The economic viability of sensor deployment requires a tailored analysis of each project. The goal is to cover the majority of potential risks with minimal effort. Therefore, positioning sensors at structurally critical points, low points, water drainage areas, seals, and road transitions proves to be of crucial importance. Additionally, the existing damage history of the structure and the applied repair principle play a significant role.

A premature determination, such as assuming 10 sensors per 100 square meters, would be too superficial given this complexity.
