Abstract

The structural monitoring, which is becoming increasingly common, makes it necessary to choose one or more methods of processing and analyzing the obtained data. This choice is key to meeting the objectives of this monitoring. Considering that there are many methods with different [...]

Abstract

The United States economy is heavily dependent upon a vast network of pipeline systems to transport and distribute the nation's energy resources. As this network of pipelines continues to age, monitoring and maintaining its structural integrity remains essential to the nation's energy [...]

Abstract

Within the framework of SENSKIN EU project (grant No. 635844), we have developed a soft capacitive sensor using silicone dielectric elastomer for Structural health monitoring (SHM). This sensor has a thin layer of stretchable silicone dielectric film and soft silicone electrodes as [...]

Abstract

Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) materials are widely used in the construction of small-length vessels due to their light weight and high strength to weight ratio. However, the use of FRP materials in vessels above 50 m length is only allowed to secondary structural elements of the [...]

Abstract

Optical fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors are commonly used for structural health monitoring in composite materials, since their small dimensions, high sensitivity and multiplexing capacity are a good match with the structures to be monitored. We present a method for making a low-loss [...]

Abstract

Temperature and humidity measurements provide useful information on multiple areas of civil engineering application such as Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), Structural System Identification (SSI) and structures rehabilitation. Majority of the existing commercial systems are so [...]

Abstract

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is essential to assess the accuracy of durability predictions of structures. Using low-cost sensors on structural evaluation has gained significant attention compare to high-cost sensors. Although these may not be as accurate and sensitive as the [...]

Abstract

To be helpful in developing recommendations to support the standardization of infrastructure resilience assessment, members of the FORESEE project have studied the data requirements of a case study through its lifecycle phases, and asset management perspectives. This paper introduces [...]
