Part of the Springer Series in Reliability Engineering book series (RELIABILITY)


This chapter presents an introduction to Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), by defining the terminology, summarizing the most common techniques, and identifying outstanding research issues. The essential components of an SHM system are also outlined to highlight the important role of numerical simulations in SHM, which is the fundamental theme of this book. The chapter ends with a summary of the organization and contents of the book in order to guide the readers through its various parts.
