Abstract

The process of implementing and maintaining a structural health monitoring system consists of operational evaluation, data processing, damage detection, and life prediction of structures. This process involves the observation of a structure over a period of time using continuous or periodic monitoring of spaced measurements, the extraction of features from these measurements, and the analysis of these features to determine the current state of health of the system. Such health monitoring systems are common for bridge structures, and many examples are citied in (Maalej et al., 2002).
