Title: A passive wireless sensor array for structural health monitoring
Author: Chen, Ye, 1986-
Abstract: This thesis summarizes ongoing work to develop low -cost , wireless , resonant sensor array that can be used to monitor corrosion in infrastructure systems . A magnetically coupled sensor array is presented and analyzed using circuit model . The array acts as a magneto -inductive waveguide and the impedance discontinuities caused by corrosion (or other defects ) lead to reflection . The relationship between the relative position of defects and pass band characteristics is investigated , providing a technique to determine the location of targets . A configuration for increased sensitivity and a method for defect localization are presented .
