Description

Covering all aspects of structural health monitoring, this encyclopedia will prove an essential reference source for all engineers, engineering managers and scientists active in the field of structural design, operational management and maintenance.

An international board of expert authors and editors provides readers with the theories and applications crucial to aerospace; road, rail and sea transport; heavy machinery; and all types of civil infrastructure, including specialist subjects such as land fills or disaster (i.e. earthquake) management. Moreover, each topic, ranging from the background of physical and mathematical principles to real practical engineering applications, is reported on in-depth and has a very practical orientation underlined by a variety of case studies.

With its thorough content, high calibre contributors and comprehensive coverage, the Encyclopedia of Structural health Monitoring will be crucial to all those involved in the field of Structural Health Monitoring. For ease-of-use it will be available online and in print.
