Structural Health Monitoring

This one-day seminar is presented by the Certificate in Structural Engineering Program.

The seminar is intended for engineers and focuses on both the theory and the practical use of the SHM for civil engineering structures.

• It examines the basic principles of measurement and data processing; the use of low-cost and long term seismic and environmental monitoring systems to keep civil engineering infrastructure under constant surveillance; and assessing the structural health in real-time.

• SHM provides quantitative means to implement and develop sustainable maintenance and rehabilitation schemes and programs for structures such as bridges, buildings, tunnels, and dams.

• The seminar will cover the concepts of rapid post-disaster assessment of instrumented civil infrastructures.
