Thin ferromagnetic strip MsS® probes for plates and piping are inexpensive and can be cost-effectively and permanently installed for long-term structural health monitoring (SHM). Structural condition changes over a large area can be accurately tracked by periodically collecting data and detecting changes in the collected data.
