Abstract:
This review paper discusses current and near-future technologies for measurement of full-scale structural performance. Modern instrumentation and measurement methodologies can provide signals and data for use in evaluating the performance of civil structures. Applications exist in model verification, extreme event monitoring, health monitoring, and serviceability monitoring. Examples are provided, and future developments are discussed.
