Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) has an important role in the management of transport infrastructure. However, most current SHM techniques and methodologies are based on data obtained from dense networks of point-based sensors (rather than sparse networks of spatial sensors) and so, in relative terms, they are costly to implement. Most commercially available strain sensors have a limited maximum range - typically 1% to 2% - and are not well-suited to providing information of a severe loss of structural integrity (following e.g. an earthquake). The H2020 SENSKIN project developed a dielectric-elastomer and micro-electronics-based skin-like sensor, based on the use of a large highly extensible capacitance sensing membrane and advanced micro-electronic circuitry, for monitoring transport infrastructure - such as concrete and steel bridges.

The aim of the webinar was to present the final results of the 4-year project which ended on 31 May 2019.
