Technical infrastructure forms a main pillar of the modern world, hosting our built environment, serving transportation and communication needs, as well as enabling the generation and transfer of energy. Within this context, engineers and owners need to warrant safe and robust operation of these systems for ensuring a smooth societal flow and resilience against short- (extreme events) and long-term threats (deterioration and fatigue processes). In tackling this challenge, engineers are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits stemming from Structural Health Monitoring, i.e., the process of gathering feedback from engineered systems via use of appropriate sensory systems. Developments in low-cost and easily deployed sensors allow for instrumentation of large scale structures, such as bridges, buildings, dams or wind turbines, generating a Big Data stream of diverse information, such as acting loads, strains, cracking and dynamic response (PDF) A Monitoring Approach to Smart Infrastructure Management.
