Joint publication on pavements, buildings, energy and marine infrastructure research by ESRs

This paper serves as a complement to the joint paper on TRUSS progress in bridge engineering already reported in SHMII-8. Here TRUSS ESRs and supervisors deal with TRUSS progress on infrastructure research other than bridges (i.e., braided FRP, concrete, nuclear racks, wind turbine towers, ships and ship unloaders and pavements). The title is 'Contributions [...]

“Embedded distributed optical fiber sensors in reinforced concrete structures-case study”

On 26th March 2018, Antonio Barrias (ESR11) published the paper titled "Embedded Distributed Optical Fiber Sensors in Reinforced Concrete Structures—A Case Study" together with his supervisors Joan Ramon Casas and Sergi Villalba, as part of the Special Issue Optical Fiber Sensors 2017 in Sensors, an original peer-reviewed journal covering all aspects of Physical Sensing. This paper is open access [...]
