The study seeks to present an innovative technique in order to adequately identify damages in structures from seismic activity using sensor systems at the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla in Puebla, Mexico. The study addressees several aspects of structures in order to provide a paradigm for assessing structural vulnerability. These components include (1) movement, (2) loading properties, (3) dimensional properties, (4) seismic vibration frequencies, and (5) material properties. Using sensory monitoring techniques and combining it with Fast-Fourier Transform and the Simplified Reference System method, damages in structures can be localized and dealt with accordingly. Together the components of the study will be successful in providing a framework for implementing sensors for deterioration control not only in Mexico but in other countries around the world.
