Structural Health Monitoring

  • Quality assured flow production of lightweight UHSC rod elements using artificial neural networks
    Together with the Institute of Building Materials Science, ISD is doing research on novel manufacturing processes for components made of ultra-high-strength concrete with a reinforcement of steel sheet and carbon fibres. An innovative extrusion process is used to produce rod-shaped components with a core of ultra-high strength concrete. They are reinforced by a combination of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and sheet steel. A sensor concept is being developed which is capable of monitoring the components "from the birth of the component". Various heterogeneous measurement data are used to control and monitor the extrusion process by means of an artificial neural network, so that a consistently high quality of the components can be guaranteed.
