ABSTRACT
Given the present burdens associated with inspection and maintenance of Civil
Infrastructure, the development of effective, automated damage diagnosis techniques,
including the sensor technologies that support them, has become a major research need.
While recent developments in wireless sensor networks have demonstrated their potential
to provide continuous structural response data to quantitatively assess structural health,
many important issues including network lifetime and stability, damage detection
reliability, and trade-offs in model order to balance computational capabilities must be
realistically addressed. Only then can wireless embedded sensor networks become a
practical tool for Structural Health Monitoring of large, complex Civil Structures. In
response to these needs, the concept of a multi-scale wireless sensor network is
