Rules-based embedded system applied to the determination of structural health in multilevel buildings
The objective of the work was to develop a rules-based system that supports determining the structural health of multi-level buildings. Hardware description techniques using programmable logic using entity integration and hierarchical design with VHDL programming are used. The system is embedded in an FPGA which, using an algorithm, integrates a first stage where a group of ultrasound sensors collect a measure that is interpreted to obtain the relative displacement of the mezzanine. In the second stage an inference engine performs the evaluation. We present results using an experimental model where it was verified that the system was able to determine the stability of the structure based on the parameter relative displacement of mezzanine.
