Dr. Goulias Awarded a New MIPS Study

Prof. Goulias was awarded a new MIPS study on the development of a passive wireless concrete maturity monitor system. The study is undertaken in cooperation with the Applied Sensor Research & Development Corporation (ASR&D) and is a feasibility assessment investigation of an existing ASR&D passive wireless multi-sensor temperature sensing system (developed for NASA) for its potential use in monitoring concrete maturity. The study will develop an innovative wireless maturity meter prototype utilizing spread spectrum communication, and having superior performance of existing alternative systems. Furthermore it is expected that this type of maturity meter will overcome several of the limitations of existing alternatives by providing the maximum flexibility in data handling and maturity modeling so as to be attractive to both researchers and industry.
