Pictured: SMT Mass Timber Displacement Monitoring using Stringpot Sensors Every month SMT publishes a newsletter we call Cloudburst, sharing resources, data, and case studies from our Structural Monitoring work. Cloudburst is delivered to all our amazing subscribers on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, which is the best way to stay up-to-date with all things monitoring. Now on the last Tuesday of the month we will be making that content available for non-subscribers on our blog.
(Highway Barrier with SMT PMM sensors embedded) In collaboration with researchers from Clemson University's Glenn Civil Engineering Department, SMT has provided 18 point moisture measurement sensors (PMM's). These PMM sensors are embedded into the CLT panel to continuously monitor the moisture content of this barrier. In the future, the research team from Clemson will also install rain gauges on the panel in order to monitor the amount of water hitting the surface. The projec
