Problem Statement
To monitor the stability of the concrete structure using smart aggregate piezoceramic patch combination for health monitoring

Solution
The solution for this problem is to convert the External Mechanical Parameter to electrical parameter.Instead of destroy the concrete use the piezoelectric sensor to monitor the health of concrete in cube and cylinder and further can be extended to beams.Smart sensing technologies includes the applications of piezoelectric sensors as it possess very important capabilities of monitoring various physical parameter related to the health and therefore, durable service life of structures. In particular, piezoelectric sensors can serve sensors as actuators, which make Structural Health Monitoring(SHM) to be an active monitoring system. Thus, smart sensing technologies are now currently available, and can be utilized to the SHM of civil engineering structures.

Beneficiary
Civil engineering infrastructure is generally the most expensive national investment and asset of any country. In addition, civil engineering structures have long service life compared with other commercial products, and they are costly to maintain and replace once they are erected. Further, there are few prototypes in civil engineering, and each structure leads to be unique in terms of materials, design, and construction. The most important structures include bridges, high-rise buildings,nuclear power plants, and dams. All civil structures age and deteriorate with time. The deterioration is mostly the result of aging of materials, continuous use, overloading, aggressive exposure conditions, lack of sufficient maintenance, and difficulties encountered in proper inspection methods. All of these factors contribute to material and structural degradation as internal and external damages emerge and coalesce, and then evolve and progress.

Innovation
Using the piezoelectric sensor to find the stress and strain of the cubes or cylinder with the help of these parameter find the health of concrete in cubes and cylinder.If the structures are weak it will alert the human who are living in the building.

India's Sustainable Development
Civil engineering infrastructure is generally the most expensive national investment and asset of any country. In addition, civil engineering structures have long service life compared with other commercial products, and they are costly to maintain and replace.With the help of this project we can find the quality of civil works like wall of the building , condition of road etc and also we can avoid the building accidents,road accidents etc so our Indian Sustainable where developed.
