Status: Programmed
Contact:
Last Name:Faridazar
First Name:Fred
Telephone:202-493-3076
E-mail:fred.faridazar@dot.gov
Office: Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:Infrastructure Analysis and Construction Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:The multimodal nature of the sensing system will allow the simultaneous measurement of miscellaneous quantities such as strain, acceleration, tilt, temperature, humidity, with sensitivity and accuracy comparable to state-of-the-art wired sensors.
Start Date: September 20, 2013
End Date: September 30, 2016
Goals:To develop a multifunction sensor system that accurately quantifies deformation, accelerations, and crack opening, and provides environmental information such as humidity and temperature that will affect the management of the United States bridge network system.
