Lots of modern engineering structures are exposed to vibrations that can cause violation to their integrity. Reducing or eliminating the risk of oscillation protects the value of buildings and infrastructure. The devices available nowadays, however, are often too slow to detect the emergence of some dynamic factors, contributing to structural damage. This work is devoted to the analysis of the use of three – axis inertial sensor ADIS16354, made by Analog Devices, for detecting and examining vibrations to which these objects are exposed. The following study presents the initial test measurements and the results of conducted calculations.

Keywords: vibration measurements; accelerometer; tower; bridge; overpass.
