1 edition of Earthquakes and Health Monitoring of Civil Structures found in the catalog.
Health monitoring of civil structures (HMS) is a new discipline, which contributes to successful and on time detection of damages to structures. This book is a collection of chapters on different topics written by leading scientists in the field. It is primarily focused on the latest achievements in monitoring the earthquake effect upon the health of civil structures. The first chapter of the book deals with the geotechnical and structural aspects of the 2010-2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Further chapters are dedicated to the latest HMS techniques of identification of damage to structures caused by earthquakes. Real time damage detection as well as sensors and acquisition systems used for that purpose are presented. The attention is focused on automated modal analysis, dynamic artificial neural networks and wavelet techniques used in HMS. Particular emphasis is put on wireless sensors and piezo-impendance transducers used for evaluation of seismically induced structural damage. The discussion is followed by presentation of case studies of application of health monitoring for buildings and other civil structures, including a super tall structure. The book ends with a presentation of shaking table tests on physical models for the purpose of monitoring their behaviour under earthquake excitation.
The book is primarily intended for engineers and scientists working in the field of application of the HMS technique in earthquake engineering. Considering that real time health monitoring of structures represents a sophisticated approach applying the latest techniques of monitoring of structures, many experts from other industries will also find this book useful.

Structural health monitoring refers to the process of implementing Earthquakes and Health Monitoring of Civil Structures book damage detection and characterization strategy for engineering structures such as bridges and buildings.
Here damage is defined as changes to the material and/or geometric properties of a structural system, including changes to the boundary conditions and system connectivity, which adversely affect the system's performance.
A virtual healthy model, installed with health monitors, is used to generate proper control forces to obtain the desired response for the controlled substructure during a disastrous event such as an earthquake. An adaptive controller and an adaptation mechanism are designed using the Lyapunov theory to calculate the real-time adaptive control force.
Evolution of Seismic Structural Health Monitoring of Buildings () Following an earthquake, rapid and accurate assessment of the damage or performance of a building is of paramount importance to stakeholders including building owners, leasers, occupants, city officials and rescue teams.
These stakeholders require answers to key questions such as. This comprehensive and well-organized book presents the concepts and principles of earthquake resistant design of structures in an easy-to-read style.

The book contains animations related to behaviour of the various buildings models used in this work. tural health monitoring and contro l systems (SHM/C) repr esent one of the prim ary applications for new sensor technologies.
In deed, much attention has been focuse d in recent years on the declining state of the aging infrastructure in the U.S., as well as to the limitation of their responses during extreme events (such as wind and earthquakes). Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a term increasingly used in the last decade to describe a range of systems implemented on full-scale civil infrastructures and whose purposes are to assist and inform operators about continued ‘fitness for purpose’ of structures under gradual or sudden changes to their state, to learn about either or both of the load and response mechanisms.

ABSTRACT Measuring the earthquake response of a bridge is an important function for low power wireless sensor networks (WSNs).
Past experience with the current generation of WSNs demonstrated that earthquakes have hit an instrumented bridge and the network completely missed it because it was either in energy-saving sleep mode or transferring ambient data that was collected prior to the earthquake.
