Health Monitoring Systems and Sensors for Assessing Concrete

Structural health monitoring and sensing are rapidly developing fields of study that have been successfully applied to engineered structures, such as aircraft frames. The implementation in concrete structures, however, is neither common nor currently accepted. ACI Committees 236, Materials Science of Concrete, and 444, Analysis for Concrete Structures, undertook an effort to organize a technical session and special publication that recognize new achievements in this promising field of research. The objective of this effort is to increase awareness of leading research that applies this technology to concrete structures, and thus to promote interest in the field. Many quality papers were submitted in response to the original call for papers for this session; regrettably, several worthy papers could not be included. The subject matter of the selected papers represents a broad range of topics, from the development of specific types of embedded sensors for concrete to the implementation of wireless sensor networks to managing infrastructure systems. This volume will be of interest to engineers, researchers, and students who wish to learn more about this important, dynamic, and developing topic.
