Experimental and Analytical Studies for Impedance-Based Smart Health Monitoring of Concrete Structures

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper presents a feasibility study of an impedance-based damage detection technique using PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches for real-time health monitoring of concrete structures. The PZT patches are used to detect progressive surface damage on a plain concrete beam. Both experimental and analytical studies are carried out. For damage quantification, root-mean square deviations (RMSD) before and after damage are used as a damage indicator.
