Development of a Smart Timber Bridge Phase II: Integration of Sensors into Glued-Laminated Beams

The objective of this work is to develop techniques for integrating sensors within timber bridge glued-laminated components. Because sensors have not typically been embedded within glued-laminated components, a significant amount of work is needed to determine how to embed sensors-both with and without physical attachment-within timber components. These techniques will be needed before the development of new sensors can be completed.
