Abstract

This paper will discuss an embedded system for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). The system designed is a working proof of concept prototype made for an SHM system using Piezoelectronic transducers as the sensors. The system uses pulse-echo and pitch-catch techniques to find the location of damage and the width of the damage. If damage is present, the system will generate an email and send to the owner of the bridge with the damage location and width. This could drastically increase the safety of bridges as engineers will be notified as soon as damage has been found thus helping with preventative maintenance.
