A novel approach in the life cycle assessment of engineering structures

ABSTRACT: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is fundamental for the assessment of the behavior of existing and new structures under service conditions. It is most suitable to identify the initiation of deterioration and to validate design hypothesis such as load distribution paths, bond between materials, composite action between precast members and cast-in-place parts, among others. The … Continue reading A novel approach in the life cycle assessment of engineering structures
