Title: Visual Indication of Structural Responses Using Electroluminescent (EL) Technologies
Invention: The technology addresses the issue of non-trained individuals to be able to monitor the integrity of a building. This is done by connecting a sensor to a circuit board that relays the information to an electroluminescent display module.
Background: Electroluminescence is the process of applying voltage to a material until it illuminates with color. There are pre-existing sensors that measure the integrity of buildings by applying current, pressure, or ultra-sonic waves. These signals can be sent to a display for visual inspection of the test structure.
