• Investigates structural health monitoring (SHM) design, sensors, networks, data analysis, and modeling for trains and rail infrastructure
• Health monitoring tied to condition-based maintenance and big data for railroad operation and safety
• Optical, ultrasonic, Fiber-Bragg grating, MEM sensors in wired and wireless networks
• Guide to monitoring train engines, freight and passenger cars, rails and rail bed, bearings, materials, welds, motors and more
• Strategies for train, subway, trams and trolley systems

Research on applying structural health monitoring to railways is now available on DEStech Publications’ web site. The focus of the research investigations is how SHM technologies are used to determine the condition of virtually every component of a rail line, including rolling stock, motors, track, ballast, coupling, welds, and bearings—as well as infrastructure such as bridges and tunnels. The objective is to demonstrate how SHM sensors, signaling, and networks can best be deployed to diagnose and predict materials’ properties throughout a rail system, with a view to improving operational safety, controlling variables like vibration, and facilitating condition-based maintenance based on local and big data. Papers discuss a range of EMU equipment, as well as advanced high-speed lines, and MagLev trains.
