To explore the feasibility of improving the delivery process of reinforced concrete, we focus in this paper on reinforcing bars (rebar) used in cast-in-place (CIP) concrete. Specifically, we describe the methodology for set-based design of rebar that we are pursuing in an ongoing research effort. Set-based design makes it possible to maintain feasible(More)
Emerging wireless sensor technology presents a tremendous opportunity for developing low-cost monitoring systems for civil infrastructure. A set of wireless MICA2 mote accelerometers were deployed on a reinforced concrete bridge column to collect data during a shaking table earthquake simulation test. The data from the test were ingested into a data and(More)
Two discrete-event simulations are developed to assess the feasibility of improving the delivery process of reinforced concrete structures. The simulations represent the resource and information flows necessary for supporting set-based design of reinforcing bars used in concrete. Set-based design enables the exploration of feasible solutions for longer in(More)
