MINI SESSION: Introduction of ACI 444.2 Report

Tuesday, October 19, 2021  11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The objective of this session is to present the newly completed ACI 444.2 Report titled Structural Health Monitoring Technologies for Concrete Structures. The intent of this report is to introduce structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies and their applications to concrete structures.
Learning Objectives:
(1) Introduce various SHM techniques for concrete structure;
(2) Define the best practical applications for different SHM techniques;
(3) Summarize the role of SHM in evaluating;
(4) Discuss the performance of concrete structures.

This session has been approved by AIA and ICC for 1 PDH (0.1 CEU). Please note: You must attend the live session for the entire duration to receive credit. Mini Sessions will not be available on-demand.


Overview of ACI 444.2 Report

Presented By: Thomas Schumacher
Affiliation: Portland State University
Description: This presentation will provide a brief overview of the report, the scope and intended audience, and the outline of the report. The remaining sections of this mini session will also be introduced.


Sensors for Structural Response

Presented By: Thomas Schumacher
Affiliation: Portland State University
Description: This presentation will cover section 4.1 of the report which discusses different sensors used to measure the mechanical response of a structure. Physical basis, equipment needed, strengths and limitations, and availability for field applications for each sensor type are presented.


Sensors for Environmental Conditions and Loads

Presented By: John Popovics
Affiliation: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Description: This presentation will cover section 4.2 of the report which discusses different sensors used for measuring environmental conditions and loads that can affect concrete structures. Physical basis, equipment needed, strengths and limitations, and availability for field applications for each sensor type are presented.


Supporting Technologies and Systems

Presented By: Brock Hedegaard
Affiliation: University of Minnesota Duluth
Description: This presentation will cover section 4.3 of the report which discusses technologies and systems used to support SHM. These include energy harvesting methods, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and wireless sensor network (WSN) systems.
