This two-volume book of over 2,300 pages, SHM: From System Integration to Autonomous Systems, offers more than 250 original and never-before published research papers on all phases of structural health monitoring. Papers in this book, originally presented at the IWSHM conference at Stanford University, contain emerging data on sensors, networking, signal processing, data mining, materials engineering and multifunctional design of SHM components. More importantly, the book provides technical guidance and examples on how the numerous different components of structural health monitoring can be integrated into either on-board SHM systems where network, hardware and software are built into the structure, and off-board systems in which only the sensor networks are permanently attached to the structure. The volume contains critical information for scientists and engineers aiming to design, implement, and validate SHM systems in aircraft, bridges, highways, and ships. A special section on industrial uses of structural health monitoring shows how SHM is now being applied in commercial facilities to expedite asset management, safety and cost controls.
The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article. Each paper has internal links from figure and table references to view the actual figures and tables and links to all e-mail addresses and URLs mentioned in any paper. Search features on the CD-ROM can be by full text including all key words, article title, author name, and session title. The CD-ROM has Autorun feature for Windows 2000 or higher products and can also be used with Macintosh computers. The CD includes the program for Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search 9.0.
