Monitoring And Detection Of Damage In Cement Composite Under Sulphate Attack Through Piezo Impedance Sensing

Deterioration of concrete due to sulphate attack is a major durability problem for concrete structures exposed to sulphate-rich soil and groundwater such as septic tanks, sewage pipes and water treatment plants. The continuous exposure to a sulphate-rich environment causes concrete to lose its strength and durability resulting in a reduction of the designed service life. This research is aimed to carry out for damage identification and monitoring of concrete structure using surface bonded and embedded piezo electric sensors. The damage induced by the sulphate attack is successfully monitored and quantified by sensory data via Impedance signature (Conductance Vs Frequency) and statistical interpretation (RMSD)
