Structural Health Monitoring for maintenance management of deteriorating structures: Current practice and state of the art

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Maintenance management of deteriorating structures is a huge challenge for the asset owners and managers in all countries with aging civil infrastructure. It is impractical to replace, or even repair, all deteriorating structures due to the substantial scale and distribution of such infrastructure, and its associated costs. Maintenance management systems developed and deployed to address this have varied success in different countries. This paper outlines the key features of maintenance management systems, reflect on the current best practice in different countries and highlight the state of the art in this area. It is demonstrated through case studies that integrating structural health monitoring in the maintenance management systems is promising in rationalizing decisions required by the asset owners constrained by the scarce resources.
