James Fisher Testing Services will be presenting at this year’s Structural Faults and Repair Conference, shedding light on how to take advantage of open source software to advance the industry’s approach to structural health monitoring (SHM).

The conference, one of the leading structural health monitoring forums in the UK is taking place in Edinburgh, May 15 – 17 and will play host to leading experts from across the sector including; structural health monitoring, infrastructure, construction and civil engineering.

During the conference JFTS’ Technical Authority for Systems Engineering, Andrew Scullion will be taking the stage to highlight how the civil engineering and structural health monitoring communities can apply new technologies.

Speaking ahead of the event, Andrew says:

“Open source software is now common in many areas of computing, but its potential application in the field of structural health monitoring has yet to be fully realised.

“At JFTS, we’ve been developing various applications of open source software, including our Smart Asset Management (SAM) system. In the last 12 months we’ve received very positive feedback from the industry, so I am looking forward to presenting at the Conference. I think that big data analytics and open source software could be a game changer to enable predictive maintenance modelling and SHM data to support performance based design and asset life extension.”
