Description of Paper:

Remote sensing of the pre-existing and the active cracks in accessible as well as in not easily accessible concrete structural components under variable stress is critical to improve the procedures for their maintenance and thus to increase the service life of the structure. This paper discusses the success of the wireless broadband technology to monitor health of the transportation assets in a near real time from a remote location using the non-destructive technology (NDT) of acoustic emission (AE). A study on the Varina-Enon Bridge near Richmond, Virginia, has been considered as a test case.
