Paper Title:
A Novel Design for Crack Width Monitoring of Concrete Structures
  Abstract

Crack monitoring is thought to be a challenging problem for structural health monitoring. In previous study, a bionic crack monitoring method is proposed to monitor the crack initiation and propagation in a structure, and smart film is designed and fabricated. A novel design, based on smart film for monitoring crack width of concrete structures, is proposed in this paper. Experiment verifies the effectiveness of this design, and proves it is a good way for crack width monitoring of concrete structures.
