Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present and discuss the most critical issues the writers have identified as needing resolution in order to implement meaningful and beneficial applications of health-monitoring. The challenges in the integration of intelligent transportation and structural systems concepts within an optimum integrated asset management framework will be overviewed. Examples from ongoing research on the health-monitoring of short-span bridge families and long-span bridges will be offered to illustrate the issues.
