12 July 1993 Intelligent civil structures efforts in Vermont: an overview
Author Affiliations +
During the past number of years, research has been underway in Vermont investigating development and implementation of smart civil structures. During the course of this effort, numerous fiber optic and conventional sensor techniques and designs have been developed and tested. Laboratory studies have led to field testing at numerous sites and types of installations ranging from residential homes, conventional multi-story buildings, pedestrian footbridges, interstate highway road surfaces and railway bridges to high performance structures such as a hydroelectric dam. A description of the efforts in sensor design as well as multiplexing and multi-use sensors and systems with particular emphasis on smart civil structures applications is given.
