The advent of smart materials such as piezo-impedance transducer (PZT) and optical fiber (FBG) has ushered a new era in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM) based on non-destructive evaluation (NDE). Exceptional advantages such as autonomous, real-time and online, remote monitoring could provide a cost-effective and reliable alternative to the conventional SHM techniques. This is especially useful in the field of civil engineering where the area of monitoring is large and with plenty of inaccessible locations.
