Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) refers to exploitation of sensing for delivering a continuous and - to the degree feasible -automated supervision of structures and infrastructures. By permitting assessment in different levels (detection, localization and characterization of damage severity, remaining useful life forecasting), SHM offers a viable means for preserving serviceability and safety and prompting for intervention, where necessary. These special sessions cover recent theoretical and applied developments and future trends in the domain of SHM with emphasis on the interpretation of the stream of sensed information.
Some key domains of investigation include, but are not limited to:
We particularly encourage submissions that report on actual-scale field measurements, applications on large-scale infrastructure, as well as works promoting the exploitation of structural data-driven diagnostic and prognostic models.
To submit your abstract for Special SHM sessions particularly, please just use the "Call for Abstract" page and include “SpecialSHM” in the list of keywords.
The objective of this panel session is to discuss the opportunities and needs for SHM to support maintenance, preservation, and management of civil infrastructure such as roads, bridges, pipelines, and dams. Panel members across diverse backgrounds and expertise, including infrastructure owners, consultants, and academics, come together with the intent to connect real-world needs and cutting-edge research. Some questions to be discussed are:
