5th International Symposium on Sensor Science

S4: Sensors for Structures

Structural health monitoring of aerospace, civil and mechanical structures and components is becoming increasingly relevant to minimize maintenance costs and provide additional layers of safety for the users. The session will focus on the progress of existing or novel sensing concepts including synergies among sensing approaches. All sensing mechanisms including piezoelectrics, piezoresistive, electrostrictives, magnetostrictives, shape memory alloys or polymers and optical are included in this session. Experimental studies are preferred but computational approaches that include applications and experimental results are also welcome. Presentations on data fusion, networking and computing of large amounts of data that are geared towards structural health monitoring applications are also encouraged in this session.
