Design and Implementation of Pipeline Monitoring System Using Acceleration-Based Wireless Sensor Network
A Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) based Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is developed for nondestructive monitoring of pipeline systems. It incorporates MEMS accelerometers for measuring flow-induced vibration on the surface of a pipe to determine the change in water pressure caused by rupture and the damage location. This paper presents an experimental investigation of the relationship between flow-induced vibration and the pressure fluctuations. Measurements of vibration were performed in pipe sections of a water-filled loop subjected to a wide range of flow rates.
