Paper Abstract

This paper looks at the real problems facing engineers today when assessing the durability of structures. The role of monitoring structures to assess their current and long term behavioral characteristics and the enhancement of the safe use of structures is discussed. The capability of existing sensor systems to enable structures to inform engineers as to the onset of problems occurring is highlighted, thus establishing the advent of Smart Structures as a reality of today, rather than an idea of the future.
