Life long structural sensing for buildings and construction material

Structural sensing will provide the enabling technologies meeting the unrealized expectations of monitoring dynamic parameters and aging parameters in the structure with key constraints: non-intrusive, long life time and reliability, low cost, wireless. Target applications for specification/experiment in structural sensing: monitoring aging of new construction materials (composite concrete and rods), building settlement, pfi (private finance initiative) or ppp (public-private partnership) monitoring needs along service, maintenance, transfer cycle, with an eye on future needs of smart materials in terms of sensors and actioners.
