Abstract

Use of field instrumentation to monitor the on-site behavior of structures is increasingly becoming a part of many construction projects. Nevertheless, few American universities offer a course on instrumentation as part of their civil engineering curriculum. To address this concern, a graduate course titled "CE607 Instrumentation, Monitoring and Condition Assessment of Civil Infrastructure" was developed and offered at Polytechnic University for the first time in the spring of 2006. Thirteen modules of the course were developed. The intent of this course is to familiarize graduate students with the principles of instrumentation and monitoring, including planning, sensor design and selection, data acquisition, information management and error analysis in civil engineering projects.
