Paper Abstract

With the rising cost of building and replacing civil infrastructure systems, as well as increased demands placed on such system, has come an elevated concern about monitoring their health. This requires the development of smart sensors suitable for real-time and in-situ measurement of concrete-based structures. Many smart sensor have been investigated to meet this requirement in the past several years. This paper describes some of the recent research activity undertaken at the Center for Intelligent Structures at Chongqing University regarding both optical sensor and monitoring strategies aimed at civil infrastructure damage assessment and integrity evaluation. Several experiments and sensor applications are also briefly described.
