New Strategies and Challenges in SHM for Aerospace and Civil Structures

Description

The field of structural health monitoring (SHM) is rapidly growing, with an aim at providing robust diagnosis and prognosis for various engineering systems spanning from aerospace to civil and transportation infrastructures. The development and deployment of robust SHM schemes is becoming pivotal to ensure the safe and cost-effective operation of these engineering systems.

The main focus of this special issue will be on numerical approaches for new SHM paradigms and laboratory validation as well as practical field applications. The special issue welcomes contributions pertaining to any class of mathematical problems and methods associated with SHM for aerospace and civil structures.

We invite authors to present original research articles as well as review articles for this special issue that aim at becoming an international forum for researchers and practitioners to summarize the most recent advances, progress, and ideas in the field of SHM strategies for aerospace and civil structures. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel methodologies, strategies, and algorithms towards practical SHM techniques for aerospace and civil infrastructure
  • Field implementation of stress waves- or impedance-based NDE/NDT technologies
  • Applications of innovative sensors and sensor networks for aerospace and civil infrastructure
  • Sensing, signal processing, data fusion, and modelling of transient waves
  • New measurement technologies and implementation
  • Reduction of vibration and mitigation of noise for aerospace and civil infrastructure

Authors are encouraged to focus on field observations obtained within the last three years or to present original work related to new methodologies considered promising for field applications. Researchers are expected to emphasize the challenges encountered during the transaction from the laboratory environment to the field. Works that compare experimental field results with numerical simulations are welcomed as well.
