Advanced Sensing Technologies for Rapid Condition Monitoring of Bridges:Theoretical Modelling,Numerical Simulation and Experimental Verification

posted on 2021-07-30, 05:44 authored by YONGDING TIAN
Bridge collapse accidents have occurred frequently in recent years due to traffic overload, material degradation and natural disasters. The aim of this PhD study is to develop advanced sensing technologies for efficient data collection and rapid dynamic identification of bridges. In this thesis, the feasibility of three kinds of sensing technologies including a soft robotic gripper for multipurpose robotics, energy harvester for wireless sensors and noncontact vision sensor for structural health monitoring was comprehensively investigated.
