Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring

Time: November 2,2009 at 13.00 – 16.00

Location: Helsinki University of Technology (TKK), TUAS building, lecture hall AS1, Otaniementie 17 (Espoo)

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a new approach to collect data about critical structural elements using sensors to provide diagnosis of the structure’s condition during its life. An intelligent monitoring system is also needed, which consists of data acquisition and data analysis components. SHM with wireless sensor networks would provide reliable information about the structure’s condition, replace visual inspections, provide ease of installation and configurability, save costs, and ultimately save people’s lives. This workshop addresses the state-of-the-art of SHM from the technology, theory and applications points of view.
