Paper Abstract

In this paper, the global and local health monitoring of civil structures using RF antennas and ferroelectric sensors is presented. The sensors are fabricated with interdigital transducers printed on a piezoelectric polymer or ceramic type film. They in turn are mounted onto an ultra thin Penn State's novel RF antenna. The wave form measurements may be monitored at a remote location via the antennas in the sensors and an outside antenna.
