Structural Health Monitoring in Australia Hardback
Edited by Tommy Chan, David P Thambiratnam
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is defined as the use of on-structure sensing system to monitor the performance of the structure and evaluate its health state.
Recent bridge failures, such as the collapses of the 1-35W Highway Bridge in USA, the collapse of the Can Tho Bridge in Vietnam and the Xijiang River Bridge in the Mainland China, all of which happened in the year 2007, have alerted the importance of structural health monitoring.
This book presents a background of SHM technologies together with its latest development and successful applications.
It is a book launched to celebrate the establishment of the Australian Network of Structural Health Monitoring (ANSHM).
The network comprising leading SHM experts in Australia promotes and advances SHM research, application, education and development in Australia.
