Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


A comprehensive introduction to strain-based structural health monitoring of civil structures, with focus on measurement and data analysis Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures focuses on the SHM of Civil Structures and Infrastructure, and develops the relevant topics of measurement and data analysis from a fundamental to advanced level. The book contains an overview of the available and emerging monitoring technologies, for example, traditional strain-gauges, fiber optic sensors, and large area electronics. The fundamental criteria for applications of SHM technologies on concrete, steel and composite materials are also discussed, and both basic and advanced data interpretation and analysis for static and dynamic monitoring are presented in detail. Methods applicable to a large spectrum of civil structures such as bridges, buildings, and geo-structures are summarized. These methods are illustrated with practical examples. Key features: * Introduces strain-based structural health monitoring of civil structures, with focus on measurement and data analysis. * Contains the basic strain-based SHM methods for monitoring various types of structures.

* Covers the physical principles, advantages and limitations of various types of sensors. * Covers the sources of static and dynamic strain, and how to interpret the strain measurement. * Includes basic and advanced methods for static and dynamic data analysis. * Explores the potential and benefits as well as the limitations of SHM. * Suitable as a guide for practicing engineers, reference for infrastructure owners, and textbook for researchers and SHM university courses. Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures is essential, state-of-the-art reading for civil and structural engineers and professionals in SHM, as well as teachers, researchers and students in civil engineering.
