20 Years of SHM
Abstract »SMARTEC SA has been active in applications of SHM for 20 years, with close to 1'000 applications in 30 countries. Our company will turn 20 in July of 2016, so the EWSHM conference is the ideal event to look back at the main developments of SHM in the last 20 years, as seen from an industrial perspective. In this contribution we will review the evolution of SHM applications through significant project examples taken from our experience in bridge and buildings monitoring as well as in geotechnical and pipeline applications. In particular we will discuss the development of SHM sensor technology, with emphasis on optical fiber sensors, SHM data analysis and interpretation. At the same time we will have a look at the evolution of SHM market acceptance and penetration. We will identify success stories where SHM really provided concrete benefits to the structure owners.
