Wireless Sensor Networks for Civil Infrastructure Monitoring: A best practice guide

Description

Wireless Sensor Networks for Civil Infrastructure Monitoring provides expert guidance on the selection and use of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology for structural monitoring of both existing infrastructure and new construction projects. The purpose of this guide is to consolidate a generic methodology for the design and implementation of WSNs for monitoring civil engineering infrastructure, coupled with best practice for data management and information valuation.

Wireless Sensor Networks for Civil Infrastructure Monitoring:

  • aims to address a wide range of monitoring objectives, including monitoring undertaken in support of construction work, in response to specific problems identified during inspections, long-term monitoring over the whole life of an asset and for research purposes
  • intends to assist stakeholders in the identification of the key performance criteria for a monitoring system
  • includes highly illustrated real-world case studies
  • contains a detailed reference list for further reading on specific topics.

Part of a series of best practice guides written by experts at the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC), this book provides valuable information which will be useful to a range of stakeholders involved in the management of infrastructure assets.
