Health Monitoring of Tension Leg Platform using Wireless Sensor Networking: Experimental Investigations

Process of deploying wireless sensor network in offshore structures for structural health monitoring is presented in this paper. Offshore structures are subjected to environmental loads with high uncertainties that are capable of causing damage during their service life. Preventive measures to safeguard the offshore platforms from such damages are not only innovative but also inevitable. Structural damages can be readily identified by monitoring their response behavior deploying dense array of sensors. Deploying wireless structural health monitoring (SHM) system ensures reduced installation time, compact design and cost reduction in comparison to that of the traditional wired systems. Wireless sensor network architecture for monitoring offshore platforms, proposed in the present study will acquire data using network of sensor nodes and transmits to the base station for post-processing. Present study compares the structural responses of offshore tension leg platform under different postulated failure cases through experimental investigations on scaled model. Acquired data are also hosted in the webpage after analyzing and post-processing. The alert monitoring system, which is an integral part of SHM triggers alert messages is an indigenous design.
