Acellent’s Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technology can be deployed in many different ways to solve a nearly endless number of problems. Over the years, we have developed a variety of SHM system implementations targeting specific applications. These applications span a wide variety of industries, ranging from aerospace to civil infrastructure—and everything in between. We support both the government/defense and commercial sectors. Below, we list a few examples of industries where SHM has proven useful, especially those where we have a ready-made solution. If you don't see your industry listed here, please contact us to discuss how SHM can help you, too.
Acellent products provide efficient and convenient solutions for maintaining the structural integrity and monitoring structural health of aircraft, rotorcraft and space structures. We provide onboard and off board SHM solutions for monitoring known “hot spot” structural areas or unknown large structural areas. Our systems are configured to for interfacing and connecting to on-board IVHM for aircraft or HUMS for rotorcraft applications.Learn more
The integrity of body or vehicle armor can be compromised by impacts to the armor, mishandling or environmental exposure reducing their ability to sustain a ballistic impact. Acellent’s systems can be used for early detection of damage in body and vehicle armor, provide enhanced safety and quick and accurate inspection of the armor in the field.Learn more
Acellent technologies provides intelligent distributed sensing capabilities in automobiles for applications such as pedestrian impact detection, crash sensing and detection of embedded damage for vehicles manufactured with advanced composite materials. Acellent’s systems are a great tool to monitor fatigue damage growth during vehicle component tests.Learn more
Acellent’s patented sensor layers are designed specifically for Valmet’s iRoll applications to provide ease of application and use during operations. The iRoll can be utilized on a covered roll in paper, board, pulp or tissue production machines to expand the roll’s primary function to include the sensor layers as a transducer for sensing cross-machine nip linear load or sheet properties. Acellent’s unique sensors command a complete redundant design suitable for iRoll’s high reliability in the paper manufacturing environment.Learn more
Acellent products and technology is ideally suited to provide cradle-to-grave structural health monitoring solutions for constant monitoring of civil infrastructure. Our state-of-the-art technology prevents pipelines, bridges, buildings from being compromised by detecting corrosion and the initiation and propagation cracks in critical regions of the infrastructure.Learn more
Acellent products and systems can be used to monitor service-related degradation of structures that can affect the performance of energy generation and storage platforms such as wind turbines and hydrogen tanks. Our technology can also be used for manufacturing of “intelligent multifunctional composites” that are ultra-lightweight, energy efficient, high-performance and affordable and provide savings on maintenance/safety cost.Learn more
