Summary
"Coaxial cables are mainly composed of inner and outer conductors, and a dielectric layer in between. In this study they are proposed as continuous sensors for monitoring of civil infrastructures. Due to small deformation and minor cracks of engineering interest, coaxial cables have never been applied into reinforced concrete (RC) structures until the late 1990s. The state of the art in design of a cable sensor is to replace the polyethylene pipe of a commercial cable with a rubber tube as a dielectric layer to increase the cable's sensitivity up to 10 times. In this dissertation a new design of prototype cable sensor is proposed. The new sensors not only respond to the cable's elongation directly but, more significantly, to the topology change in the outer conductor associated with the cable elongation"--Abstract, leaf iii
