Paper Abstract

Sensors are now becoming available that can be embedded in concrete or asphalt, or attached to steel structures for monitoring structural performance over significant periods of time. For the most effective use of these sensors, a monitoring strategy has to be developed for each specific application, which can range from heavy impact detection to modal analysis to concrete shrinkage. Among the tradeoffs that must be considered is the type of sensor. Other factors include the frequency range, the number and location of the sensors and the duration of the data collection. Data collection, transmission and storage systems are also significant components of the overall system.
