PZT sensors can produce voltage in response to movement in a structure, allowing PZT sensors to determine changes in strain and to monitor vibrations. It is the purpose of this project to calibrate a PZT sensor apparatus in order to determine if PZT sensors can be used to monitor the health of a bridge, and to determine if PZT sensors can be used to generate electricity from the motion of a bridge.
