Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is gradually gaining the attention of structural engineers as an attractive tool for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) applications. In this paper, an experimental implementation of a correlation-based, decentralized damage detection technique using a wireless sensor network is presented. The Damage Location Assurance Criterion (DLAC) method is validated experimentally using wireless sensor networks. The networks are deployed on both a steel cantilever beam and on a 3D truss model. The experimental implementations are described and corresponding results are presented. Limitations with sensor functionalities during experiment are also addressed and discussed.
