Abstract
The ability to monitor the condition of a naval structure to detect damage or property changes at early stages is of significant interest. We proposed to develop a ship structure monitoring system that is low cost, modular, and easily deployable. The system incorporates various types of sensors and provides early warning of critical structural problems through cooperative data processing and diagnosis. With minimal human intervention, the system can potentially achieve real-time"smart"health monitoring of critical ship structures and measure the loads and stress level for the safety of ship operation.
