Coaxial Cable Sensors and Sensing Instrument for Crack Detection in Bridge Structures - Phase I: Field Qualifications/Validation Planning

This project is aimed at developing a field test plan and methodology for the purpose of demonstrating a new structural condition assessment technology. The research tasks are to analyze a decommissioned, typical girder highway bridge that will be selected in consultation with New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), and design and plan the field tests of the bridge for the performance qualification and validation of distributed crack sensors and a fast Electrical Time Domain Reflectometry instrument to their full potential.
