Abstract

In recent years, wireless sensor network systems have increasingly been used to monitor infrastructure health. Advances in electronics and sensing systems have enabled the development of various pressure-sensing methods for pipe-pressure monitoring. This article presents laboratory-based test results as part of the development and validation of a pipeline pressure-monitoring method based on force sensitive resistors (FSR). Additionally, to validate the data, the proposed pressure-sensing method is compared with a commercially available direct-pressure sensor. Analysis of the data shows a significant correlation (correlation factor = 0.9928) between the commercial sensor and the proposed sensor. These results showed that the proposed method has an acceptable accuracy and reliability even though it is not ultimately intended for absolute-pressure measurements, but for monitoring relative pressure changes in pipes. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.
