Title

Characterization and implementation of distributed coaxial cable crack sensors for embedment in reinforced concrete structural members

Abstract

"Earthquakes pose a major problem to the functionality of our society as whole. One of the reasons for that is the extensive damage that can occur to the load-carrying components of a structure during an earthquake...A new tool for aiding in the inspection and damage detection process is discussed in this thesis. This new tool is a distributed crack sensor that can be embedded in reinforced concrete structural components"--Abstract, leaf iii.
