Abstract [en]

This thesis presents a study of wireless sensor networks applied in monitoring the curing process of concrete building structure. To replace the massive user intervention of the traditional monitoring methods with automated data acquisition, various types of sensors are developed for different concrete tests, including compressive strength measurement, maturity test, and relative humidity test. The main purpose of the thesis is to provide an analysis of existing commercial sensors as well as research prototypes, comparing different test methods and communication models. Distribution of sensors, future potential in millimeter-wave, and simulation environments are also discussed.
