About the research

Abstract:

This study will focus on investigating the feasibility of using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems and Sensors (MEMS) in highway pavement infrastructure for structural health monitoring purposes. The feasibility study will focus on the utilization of MEMS and their potential applications in PCC through comprehensive literature review, vendor survey, and a laboratory study.
