The paper deals the simulation model of the wireless sensor technology for monitoring the bridge girder. The main components of the wireless sensor technology are sensor, transmitter and receiver. The sensors are used to measure the structural behavior measurement parameters such as acceleration, sound, temperature, deflection, and strain. Transmitter and receiver are used as a communication media for collecting the sensor data to the main server without wire based communication. The simulation model of the transmitter and receiver have been developed using the Matlab/Simulink toolbox. The validation of the simulation model is done by the comparing the input and output signal results of the transmitter and receiver. This simulation model of the wireless technology would be useful to develop the hardware concept of the wireless sensor networking for monitoring the bridge girder.
