    Accurate and reliable damage characterization (i.e., damage detection, localization, and evaluation of extent) in civil structures and infrastructure is an important objective of structural health monitoring (SHM). Highly accurate and reliable characterization of damage at early stages requires continuous or quasi-continuous direct sensing of the critical parameters. Direct sensing requires deploy...

    Wireless sensor nodes (WSNs) are essential elements for today’s structural health monitoring (SHM). As the design technology for WSNs evolves, there have been continuous efforts to address challenges for WSNs such as short lifetime, high power consumption, and bulky volume. Recent trends show energy harvesting becoming a popular solution for extending the lifetime of WSNs; even implementing... View full abstract»

    Concrete and other cementitious composites used in civil infrastructure are prone to many forms of damage. For example, cracks could occur and propagate to cause catastrophic component or system-level failure. Therefore, the objective of this study was to nano-engineer a self-sensing cementitious composite that could detect and locate damage. Integration of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) in...

    Reinforced concrete infrastructure assets built during the last century are required to stay in-service beyond their intended design lives, which requires techniques that allow the effects of deterioration and overloading to be monitored to ensure these assets are still fit for purpose. One such indicator of distress in a reinforced concrete structure is crack movement; models have been proposed t... View full abstract»

  • Statistical Performance Assessment of an NDE-Based SHM-DP Methodology for the Remaining Fatigue Life Prediction of Monitored Structural Components and Systems

    Integrated structural health monitoring and damage prognosis (SHM-DP) methodologies, coupled with sensor-based nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, are becoming increasingly important for the near-real-time condition assessment (i.e., SHM) and future performance predictions (i.e., DP) of aging mechanical systems, civil structures, and infrastructure networks, as well as automotive, naval, a...

  • Some Recent Developments in SHM Based on Nonstationary Time Series Analysis

    Many of the algorithms used for structural health monitoring (SHM) are based on, or motivated by, time series analysis. Quite often, detection methods are variants of approaches developed within the statistical process control (SPC) community. Many of the algorithms used represent mature theory and have a rigorous probabilistic or mathematical basis. However, one of the main issues facing SHM prac... View full abstract»

    Ultrasonic guided waves are an attractive tool for structural health monitoring due to their capability to rapidly assess large regions of a structure. Yet, most guided wave based methods for detecting, locating, and classifying structural damage rely on our ability to accurately predict guided wave behavior. Characterizing and predicting guided wave behavior is difficult, particularly in mechanic... View full abstract»

    Guided wave sensors are widely used in a number of industries and have found particular application in the oil and gas industry for the inspection of pipework. Traditionally this type of sensor was used for one-off inspections, but in recent years there has been a move towards permanent installation of the sensor. This has enabled highly repeatable readings of the same section of pipe, potentially... View full abstract»

  • Three-Tier Modular Structural Health Monitoring Framework Using Environmental and Operational Condition Clustering for Data Normalization: Validation on an Operational Wind Turbine System

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1632 - 1646
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1894 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper proposes a three-tier algorithmic framework as the basis for the flexible design of data-driven structural health monitoring (SHM) systems. The three major functions of the SHM system, including data normalization, feature extraction, and hypothesis testing (HT), are mapped to the three layers of the framework. The first tier of the framework is devoted to data normalization. Machine le... View full abstract»

  • Expected Utility Theory for Monitoring-Based Decision-Making

    The main purpose of structural health monitoring (SHM) is to obtain information about the state of a structure in order to guide bridge management decisions. Nevertheless, in practice, once a rigorous estimate of the structural state is available, decisions are usually made based on the decision-maker's intuition or experience. In this paper, we present the implementation of expected utilit... View full abstract»

    When the Titanic sank and took the lives of 1500 people in 1912, the coverage in the American press reflected the shock of the public that such a disaster could occur. The ship represented the acme of maritime transportation, including a state-of-the-art wireless telegraphy station. Much of the surprise arose from the discovery that the operation of this station and the international maritime wire... View full abstract»
