Small and robust antennas for concrete embedded sensors

Abstract

We study a small antenna for a structural health monitoring sensor. The sensor is cast into concrete. The sensor monitors the humidity and temperature of the concrete, which is a harsh environment. From measured material parameters of the concrete we estimate the signal loss and the antenna detuning. We find that the antenna is considerably detuned due to… (More)
