Brief description for the project:
Recently, health monitoring of structures possesses great attention for various purposes. One of them follows the status of the existing structure, especially if it is an infrastructure
that handles traffic load and mainstream of any country. Secondly, it lowers the cost of maintenance and rehabilitation as no human skills are required for testing existing structures and evaluating manuals. In addition, it lowers the budget cost for any existing
structures and specifies exactly the required budget for repairing the defective parts in these structures. In this project, two novel new techniques are suggested over monitoring the structures: external and internal.

Challenges of the project:
A hollow PDMS sphere should be implemented instead of the regular PDMS sphere used in this study to be able to reduce the mass of the resonator and measure high band width frequencies.
