Assessment of Concrete Pavement Support Conditions using Distributed Optical Vibration Sensing Fiber and a Neural Network

This paper presents a new method that uses distributed optical vibration sensing (DOVS) technology and a neural network, which can access the concrete pavement support condition with lower cost and higher efficiency. This method relies on the vibration properties of the concrete pavement slabs, which was captured by an embedded DOVS system and extracted using the wavelet packet transform. Based on the extracted properties, a grading method that using probabilistic neural network (PNN) to assess the support condition was proposed. Through field tests, the accuracy of this method can reach 92.8% for 2-grade assessment and 81.4% for 3-grade assessment, respectively.
