One of the greatest challenges facing civil engineers in the 21st century is the stewardship of civil engineering infrastructure. Nowhere is this more apparent than in underground structures in the major cities around the world. Advances in the development of fibre optics, computer vision, miniature micro-electro-mechanical sensors (MEMS) and wireless sensor network (WSN) offer intriguing possibilities that can radically alter the paradigms underlying existing methods of condition assessment and monitoring of such infrastructure. To promote this effort, the new Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction was established last April with support from EPSRC , TSB and Industry. The talk will give an overview of the centre activities as well as several field demonstration studies using the new technologies.

This talk is part of the Engineering Department Geotechnical Research Seminars series.
