Development of Surface-Mounted Smart Piezoelectric Modules for Bridge Damage Identification and Safety Monitoring

The objective of the proposed study is to develop an effective non-destructive ultrasonic smart piezoelectric module to be used for identifying the damage and condition (cracks, material degradation, etc.) in highway bridges. Such a smart sensing technology can be used to identify damage in bridge structures, monitor safety conditions, assist bridge maintenance decision-making, help state departments of transportation (DOTs) perform forensic studies on the bridge premature failure, and meet the Pacific Northwest Transportation Consortium (PacTrans) theme of “developing data driven solutions and decision-making for safe transport”.
