BM FLAMENCO™ software package

The next generation of structural health monitoring software

The FLAMENCO™ software package

The Flamenco software package is a multi-module structural health monitoring software platform which enables real-time structural health assessment. The software is driven by information extracted from time data series recorded by sensors placed strategically on the monitored structure.

Fully automated system identification algorithm

The state-of-the-art fully automated signal processing engine condenses the data into sets of structural parameters and through these parameters the overall structural health can be assessed.

Real-time structural state monitoring

Flamenco outputs a current state indication along with an estimate of the remaining service-life of the monitored asset.

Patented technology

Flamenco can be merged with a finite element representation of structure, hereby state information in an arbitrary point can be achieved.

Step 1
Data Acquisition and Transfer

The sensors are installed in strategically advantageous positions on the structure and record the structural response. The recorded data is transferred to the cloud.

    Step 2
    Signal Processing and Analysis

    In the cloud the data is processed and the structural features are extracted and stored in the database.

      Step 3
      Output and Monitoring

      The user can access each specific monitored structural asset via the internet and oversee the current state and the projected remaining service-life.

        The FLAMENCO™ SHM software package

        The Flamenco application is a multi-module structural health monitoring software platform which enables real-time structural health assessment. It is based on operational modal analysis techniques to perform the health assessment of a structure.

          Why use Auto OMA?

          Operational modal analysis (OMA) is the technique the takes the structural information out of the random responses of any structure. Auto OMA is OMA automated – it gives you all the information in real time – on your own website.
        • II

          Why concentrate on SHM not OMA?

          OMA is not an easy task. It takes you a long time to learn all you need to know, and even in that case, it takes you a long time to analyze all data sets manually.
        • III

          Why identify all modal parameters?

          Robustness of auto OMA is essential, because you cannot afford to lose data from important (extraordinary) events. That is why you need super robust algorithms that will nearly never fail.

          Why try the FLAMENCO™ demo?

          You should try the FLAMENCO™ software to see how this works in your case. You get your own website, and you upload your vibration response data to the Cloud, and see the results immediately.

          Is the auto OMA robust?

          You should take a look at the paper published, see Brincker, Amador and Lydakis: A new Cloud-based software for automated SHM of civil structures. In Conf. Proc. of IMAC 2023.
