Performance Analysis of Antennas in Structural Health Monitoring

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Antennas with good performance are required for advancement in wireless structural health monitoring. Planar inverted-F antenna, dipole and microstrip patch antenna are used to study return loss (S11) at 2.4 GHz when they are embedded inside concrete pier. Antenna performance is studied in air and when it's placed inside concrete. The return loss and the bandwidth along with other parameters are studied. It is observed concluded that the dipole antenna is more suitable when embedding antenna inside concrete of relative permittivity of 4.45.
