In-Service Structural Monitoring a State-of-the-Art Review

This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of monitoring the inservice behaviour of structures. Much specialist monitoring has been undertaken in geotechnical and foundation engineering, and this knowledge and expertise is now beginning to be applied to monitoring superstructures. Issues dressed in this paper include reasons for installing a monitoring scheme, in what circumstances and at what stage monitoring is appropriate, and the practical issues of how to proceed in terms of where instrumentation should be situated and what instrumentation and techniques should be used. R.M. Moss and S.L. Matthews
