Improving sensor performance for avoiding problems in bridges and dams

New fiber-based sensor could quickly detect structural problems in bridges and dams. Today, there is great interest in using distributed sensors to continually monitor the structural health of large structures such as dams or bridges. With 1 million sensing points, a newly developed fiber optic distributed sensor could offer significantly faster detection of structural problems than is currently available.
