4th International Workshop on Structural Control

Proceedings, June 10-11, 2004, Columbia University, New York

Editors: Andrew Smyth and Raimondo Betti, Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, Columbia University

ISBN: 978-1-932078-45-9, 1-932078-45-2, 2005, 326 pages, 6×9, Hardcover

  • Key new technologies for structural health monitoring
  • New sensor and sensing network techniques
  • Performance & seismic data for actual and simulated construction

This new book presents the most up-to-date research and applications on sensing technologies to monitor and control the structure and health of buildings, bridges, installations, and other constructed facilities. Written by scientists from Europe, Japan, Korea, the USA and China, the book provides engineering information on how to incorporate sensing devices and networks into buildings and how to collect and manage the data they generate. Original knowledge from all parts of the world is given for monitoring actual as well as simulated structures. Chapters are based on presentations from the International Workshop on Structural Control, held in June, 2004, and supported by the IASCM (International Association of Structural Control and Monitoring), the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Division, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and the Fu Foundation of Engineering and Applied Science.
