Structural Health Monitoring & Control Committee

Purpose

To cover the broad areas of engineering mechanics related to:

  1. Structural Health Monitoring
  2. System identification
  3. Damage detection
  4. Fault isolation and detection
  5. Sensor networks, new forms of actuation
  6. Smart materials and structures, and
  7. Passive, active, semi-active and hybrid structural control.

The activities would engage the national and international researchers and practitioners in the broad fields of structural health monitoring and control. Furthermore, the committee will encourage and foster research that will, in the future, support the implementation of structural health monitoring and structural control in practice.

Membership Eligibility:

New applicants are required to have satisfied at least one of the following criteria within the last five years:

  1. Have made at least one presentation at EMI annual conferences;
  2. Have (co-)organized at least one mini-symposium at EMI annual conferences;
  3. Have (co-)authored at least one paper that is published, in print, or accepted for publication in the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics;
  4. Have completed at least two manuscript reviews for the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics.
