Sensors will soon monitor the structural health of major infrastructure objects.

How infrastructure objects and systems will soon look after themselves

Los Alamos Engineering Institute researchers working in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM) are developing sensor systems to track health and damage information for the nation’s major infrastructure objects—including buildings and bridges, power plants and industrial plants, ships and aircraft, and other large-investment equipment for transportation, entertainment, and scientific research. They are designing and building SHM hardware as well as developing algorithms to screen raw SHM sensor data reliably for evidence of structural degradation.
