Paper Abstract

Health monitoring of infrastructure systems for their proactive management to make the best use of limited resources for their optimum life-cycle performance, protection and preservation is a promising paradigm. Structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies have sufficiently evolved to accomplish real-time post-hazard evaluation of highway bridges. Solution of the pressing and critical problem of post-hazard bridge condition evaluation is possible by problem-focused, coordinated cross-disciplinary research. A newly initiated research program, which has been formulated for creating knowledge to construct an intelligent bridge SHM system, is presented in this paper. An overview of the state-of-the-art research in SHM is outlined.
