Abstract

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a method of localizing damage in infrastructures regarding structural strain, vibration or movements due to external contributing factors which mainly occur as a result of natural disasters. The need to analyze such occurrences can prevent potential damage of massive scale. A sensing system with high sensitivity is needed for reliable structural health monitoring. A capacitive sensing circuit is designed using off-the-self-components and transmit data wirelessly using XBee. The circuit can detect small changes of capacitance variation due to structure vibration.
