Cable-Supported Bridges and Structures: Health and Safety Monitoring and Problem Solving

Cables and other tension members comprise critical structural members in a variety of engineered facilities. Suspended and cable-stayed bridges, tents, and suspended roofs, are among the structures that extensively adopt cable structural elements. Owing to the relative engineering simplicity and predictable response of a tension element, cables can be readily implemented as a macro-sensor for detecting the onset and progress of damage to the structure.
