Title

Structural Damage Assessment with Cable Sensor Memory System

Abstract

A team of UMR engineers are developing a new sensor system that may help get rescue personnel to the scene rapidly. The prototype cable sensor, made from a polytetrafluoroethylene-insulated copper wire surrounded by a solder-coated steel spiral layer can be embedded in lengths of up to 100 ft. The new cable sensor is designed to "memorize" the most severe damage that occurred during a prior catastrophic event, allowing for an immediate assessment of the structure's performance and integrity.
