Book Description :

This thesis surveys the use of sensors and sensor networks in monitoring civil structures, with particular emphasis on the monitoring of bridges and highways using fiber optic sensors. Following a brief review of the most widespread form of civil infrastructure inspection -- visual inspection -- the thesis describes the anatomy, mechanisms, and types of fiber optic sensors and characterizes the tradeoffs involved in choosing between fiber-optic and conventional sensor technologies. The thesis then presents a survey of contributions to this field, followed by a discussion of deployed applications of fiber-optic sensors, many of them in North America. The latter portion of the thesis first briefly discusses the emerging technology of wireless sensor networks and then presents an abbreviated case study comparing the costs and time required to deploy a fiber optic system to traditional visual inspection on the same structure. The case study suggests that the fiber optic sensors are a cost-effective technology, particularly when indirect savings are considered. The thesis concludes with some comments on the prospects and challenges for sensor technologies in civil infrastructure monitoring.

Book Description :

Structural health monitoring (SHM) uses one or more in situ sensing systems placed in or around a structure, providing real-time evaluation of its performance and ultimately preventing structural failure. Although most commonly used in civil engineering, such as in roads, bridges, and dams, SHM is now finding applications in other engineering environments, such as naval and aerospace engineering. Written by a highly respected expert in the field, Structural Sensing, Health Monitoring, and Performance Evaluation provides the first comprehensive coverage of SHM. The text begins with a review of the various types of sensors currently used in SHM, including point sensors and noncontact systems. Subsequent chapters explain the processing and interpretation of data from a number of sensors working in parallel. After considering issues related to the structures themselves, the author surveys the design of a tailor-made SHM system. He also presents a collection of case studies, many of which are drawn from his own experiences. Exploring the power of sensors, this book shows how SHM technologies can be applied to a variety of structures and systems, including multistory buildings, offshore wind energy plants, and ecological systems.

Book Description :

Nanosensors for Smart Manufacturing provides information on the fundamental design concepts and emerging applications of nanosensors in smart manufacturing processes. In smart production, if the products and machines are integrated, embedded, or equipped with sensors, the system can immediately collect the current operating parameters, predict the product quality, and then feed back the optimal parameters to machines in the production line. In this regard, smart sensors and their wireless networks are important components of smart manufacturing. Nanomaterials-based sensors (nanosensors) offer several advantages over their microscale counterparts, including lower power consumption, fast response time, high sensitivity, lower concentration of analytes, and smaller interaction distance between sensors and products. With the support of artificial intelligence (AI) tools such as fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, neural networks, and ambient intelligence, sensor systems have become smarter. This is an important reference source for materials scientists and engineers who want to learn more about how nanoscale sensors can enhance smart manufacturing techniques and processes. Outlines the smart nanosensor classes used in manufacturing applications Shows how nanosensors are being used to make more efficient manufacturing systems Assesses the major obstacles to designing nanosensor-based manufacturing systems at an industrial scale

Book Description :

Civil infrastructure monitoring is an important technology that provides accurate and objective data on the health condition of a structure by leveraging sensor technologies. Together with routine maintenance and inspection, civil infrastructure monitoring enables the diagnosis of potential structural problems and the prognosis for the need of structural strengthening and repairs. As sensor technologies mature and become economically affordable, their deployment for civil infrastructure monitoring will continue to grow to collect more detailed data about the structures. The data collected from civil infrastructure monitoring systems offers promising opportunities to find meaningful information, knowledge and insight that can improve decision making processes. Furthermore, advances in sensing and communication technologies will eventually realize the concept of cyber-physical systems (CPS) that tightly integrate physical systems and cyber systems to monitor, analyze, coordinate and control the operations of physical systems. Nevertheless, the increasing use of sensors will also lead to significant data management issues. Civil infrastructure monitoring systems instrumented with dense sensor networks will be inundated with unprecedented volume and diverse types of data that need to be processed, interpreted and brought forth to support system operations. The utilization of such "big data" will be significantly limited unless a proper data management platform, which can efficiently store, manage, retrieve, share, interface, link and integrate data, is developed. This thesis describes a cyberinfrastructure platform for civil infrastructure monitoring with an emphasis on system scalability and interoperability. The cyberinfrastructure platform brings together information and communication technologies (ICT), including information modeling, NoSQL database, cloud computing and web services, for effective data management. An information modeling framework with application to bridge monitoring is designed to facilitate data interoperability and data integration. A NoSQL-based data management system is developed to enable scalable, flexible and fault-tolerant management of monitoring data. Cloud computing is adopted as a scalable, reliable and accessible computing infrastructure. Platform-neutral web services are developed to enable easy access to the cloud resources and data involved in engineering systems via standard communication protocols. For demonstration, the cyberinfrastructure platform is implemented for the monitoring of bridges along the I-275 corridor in the State of Michigan. The results show that the cyberinfrastructure platform can effectively manage the sensor data and domain-specific information and facilitate data sharing, integration and utilization.
