Auscultation is the procedure for assessing what condition infrastructure is in, when in use or in a state for use.  

Civil structure instrumentation and auscultation is an extremely useful tool for performing predictive maintenance. This means useful life can be extended, performance enhanced and any potential structural changes can be identified and dealt with in advance.  

Therefore, using the right instrumentation for such structures is essential, to ensure proper monitoring, planning and management. It is also vitally important to have a team of experts to help establish the best solutions based on each project’s needs.
