Description

The goal of the fatigue monitoring system is to revolutionize long term fatigue analysis with a complete cost effective system by merging the sensor, data acquisition system and real time processing units into one. The user will have freedom in mounting the sensor units since they will be battery powered and wireless. Once mounted they will require no further attention except for replacement of the batteries every two to three years. Communication between the user and sensor units will be done from the central office to the test site via a radio repeater located near the testing area. Each sensor unit will have an identification number allowing the user to download processed data from a particular sensor. Once downloaded, the data can be stored for later reference or further manipulated by the user. The system could be used as a fully automated fatigue monitoring system by allowing a computer to periodically download data from sensor units and, based on the data, determine if a stress fracture is imminent, thus warning the user of possible problems.
