This book provides information about the application of Structural Health Monitoring technologies to civil engineering structures including buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams, and pavements. The book is unique as it covers application of a broad spectrum of sensors for monitoring of cracks, deformations, loads, and other types of structural anomalies. The range of sensors covered includes conventional as well as novel sensors such as resistance type strain gauges, PZT, magnetic, fiber optics and smart materials.
