A review on five key sensors for monitoring of concrete structures

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

A multitude of structural health monitoring options are currently being investigated to address the reliability of concrete infrastructures at different stages of their service life. This review presents the recent achievements in the field of sensors developed for monitoring the health of concrete infrastructures. The focus of this review is on sensors developed for monitoring parameters including temperature, humidity, pH, corrosion rate, and stress/strain and the sensors particularly fabricated based on fiber optic, Bragg grating, piezoelectric, electrochemical, wireless and self-sensing technologies. Several examples of developed concrete monitoring sensors (from laboratory concepts to commercialized products) together with their various benefits and drawbacks as well as open research problems will be discussed in this paper.
