Sensors for Structural Health Monitoring in Civil Infrastructure

Description

Our lives rely heavily on the civil infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, tunnels, power plants, and dams. Maintenance and monitoring of civil infrastructure for an accurate estimation of infrastructure age, usability, and also the probable causes of concern are of great importance. Malfunctioning and reckless, negligence, and unconscious human actions over civil infrastructure have caused tremendous economic loss and claimed numerous human lives. The development of effective structural health monitoring (SHM) methods has gained traction amongst the research community in recent years. A typical health monitoring system is composed of a network of sensors that measure the parameters relevant to the state of the structure and its environment, such as temperature, stress, delamination, strain, vibration, and humidity. Accurate, robust, fast response and long term reliable sensors are necessary for in situ structural health monitoring. Although many types of sensors have been developed and demonstrated, the potential for innovative high-performance in situ sensors is increasingly evident.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will advance current sensor technologies for SHM.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • New sensor development and application for SHM
  • Physical sensors: position, deformations, inclinations, strains, forces, pressures, accelerations, and vibrations
  • Chemical sensors: corrosion, pH, humidity, and refractive index
  • Environmental sensors: air temperature, wind speed and direction, precipitation, snow accumulation, water levels, and flow
  • Sensor materials, processing, and fabrication
  • Wired and wireless sensor networks
  • Fiber optic sensors
  • Smart sensor structures with signal processing capability
  • Sensors to measure the structural damage
  • Studies using sensors for Structural Health Monitoring Collapse
