This book is organized around the various sensing techniques usedto achieve structural health monitoring. Its main focus is onsensors, signal and data reduction methods and inverse techniques,which enable the identification of the physical parameters,affected by the presence of the damage, on which a diagnostic isestablished.
Structural Health Monitoring is not oriented by the typeof applications or linked to special classes of problems, butrather presents broader families of techniques: vibration and modalanalysis; optical fibre sensing; acousto-ultrasonics, usingpiezoelectric transducers; and electric and electromagnetictechniques.
Each chapter has been written by specialists in the subject areawho possess a broad range of practical experience. The book will beaccessible to students and those new to the field, but theexhaustive overview of present research and development, as well asthe numerous references provided, also make it required reading forexperienced researchers and engineers.
