Project C11-2019: Development of a system-level distributed sensing technique for long- term monitoring of concrete and composite bridges

Development of a System-level Distributed Sensing Technique for Long-Term Monitoring of Concrete and Composite Bridges

Project C11.2019

Project Summary

The problem we are trying to solve is the long-term monitoring problem of bridges (e.g., concrete and composite bridges), using multiple modes of sensing technology including distributed fiber optic, video motion, conventional strain gauge, and electromagnetic sensors. This synergistic research will lead us to the development of bridge health monitoring systems with better practicality for and better accuracy on structural health management in transportation infrastructure.
