Concrete Crack and Spalling Detection in a 6.1-meter Precast RC Piles with Novel Distributed Cable Sensors and ETDR Measurement
Matching Research Agency
California Department of Transportation
|¼ FTE for one year.|
To field validate the effectiveness of distributed crack sensors for concrete crack and spalling detection.
Five sensors will be installed into five full-scale precast piles. Tests will be conducted at the University of California, San Diego.
The validated technology will benefit the society by allowing post-earthquake assessment with real time monitoring.
