Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are one of the emerging technologies in the 21st century. In the structural health monitoring (SHM). WSNs are used as one of the vitally capable technologies in the SHM. The accelerometer module in the existing sensor nodes enables several novel applications. In this paper, a prototype for monitoring and detecting the damage for the real bridge using these sensor nodes is built. The prototype consists of sensor nodes, shaking table including its amplifier, and real bridge. The sensors are placed on a scaled down concrete bridge model that is mounted on a shaking table. The results are demonstrated in terms of acceleration on different nodes at a particular excitation frequency in the case of normal, single-side damage, and double-side damage.
