Electromechanical impedance techniques are commonly used in recent structural health monitoring systems for damage detection. The technique is accurate and reliable for the detection of damage and provides an alert about structure deterioration by accessing the measured parameters. Piezoelectric patches are bonded to the structure for damage identification. A smart system has been proposed in this paper to detect damage in the structure of concrete beam, metal plate, and pipeline with impedance chip and piezo sensors. A similar structure of concrete beam, metal plate, and pipeline were designed using ANSYS. The signatures obtained from the impedance chip were compared with the output from ANSYS. The result from the impedance chip indicates the detection of damage due to cracks, corrosion, boundary condition, deformation, and leakages. The impedance obtained from the chip has a good agreement with the ANSYS results.
