ABSTRACT Self-sensing uses the cement-based material without sensor incorporation to sense itself. This paper reviews self-sensing cement-based materials, with coverage of the well-studied resistance-based sensing as well as the less-studied capacitance-based sensing. This review is the first that covers capacitance-based self-sensing. Capacitance-based sensing is advantageous over resistance-based sensing in that no particular admixture is required, so that it is applicable to both existing… 

Self‐stress and deformation sensing of electrically conductive asphalt concrete incorporating carbon fiber and iron tailings

Asphalt road gradually deteriorates in serviceability with insignificant damage. The deterioration begins with microcracks and continues until structural failure. To facilitate early damage

The Utilization of Pearson’s Method to Analyze Piezoresistive Effect in Self-Sensing Cement Composite with Graphite

Structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques aim to detect and prevent failures in constructions, although their use may require many sensors, which makes this technique expensive and laborious. In

Electrical Impedance Tomographic Methods for Sensing Strain Fields and Crack Damage in Cementitious Structures

Cement-based composites (for example, concrete) are brittle materials that crack when loaded in tension. Current strategies for crack detection are primarily based upon visual inspection by an

Spatially resolved self-sensing of strain and damage in carbon fiber cement

Spatially resolved self-sensing of strain and damage has been shown in carbon fiber cement under flexure by three-point bending. This involves measurement of the one-dimensional distribution of the
