Title Pilot Study on Diagnostic Sensor Networks for Structure Health Monitoring.
Publication Date Aug 2013
Media Count 4p
Personal Author G. Chen M. X. Cheng
Abstract The proposal was submitted in an effort to obtain some preliminary results on using sensor networks for real-time structure health monitoring. The proposed work has twofold: to develop and validate an elective algorithm for the diagnosis of coupled cyber-physical systems in the event of faults, and to monitor and assess the structural condition of bridges in real-time with sensor networks. Through the first year's investigation, we have learned that the second part of the proposed work actually requires new measuring methodology. As a result, research in this direction has extended to the following year, and a new project entitled 'Data Acquisition, Detection and Estimation for Structural Health Monitoring' has started.
