New fiber-based sensor could quickly detect structural problems in bridges and dams

Posted On: 05/08/17

"Today, there is great interest in using distributed sensors to continually monitor the structural health of large structures such as dams or bridges. With 1 million sensing points, a newly developed fiber optic distributed sensor could offer significantly faster detection of structural problems than is currently available..."
