Abstract
This paper presents the preliminary results of an investigation on the application of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) to civil infrastructure health monitoring. An off-the-shelf FPGA development board available at a comparable price to microprocessor development boards is adopted in this study. Advantages, disadvantages, feasibility and design concerns when using such a reconfigurable hardware architecture for implementing algorithms for structural health monitoring in a wireless sensor unit are studied in a showcase of implementing Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) in a wireless data transmitting setting.
