Performing Structural Health Monitoring of the 2008 Olympic Venues Using NI LabVIEW and CompactRIO

Structural health monitoring systems based on LabVIEW and CompactRIO monitor the Beijing National Stadium, the main venue for the 2008 Summer Olympics for stability, reliability, and livability.

"We deployed an embedded monitoring system with unmatched competitive accuracy, price, and flexibility by using LabVIEW and CompactRIO as the computing platform. "

- Chris McDonald, CGM Engineering, Inc.

The Challenge:
Performing structural health monitoring (SHM) to determine the stability, reliability, and livability of multiple large structures throughout China, including the new Olympic venues in Beijing.

The Solution:
Using the NI LabVIEW graphical programming environment and NI CompactRIO hardware platform to design a highly accurate SHM system with time-based GPS synchronization to monitor structures at critical points.
