Vibration-based structural damage identification (SDI) algorithms have been recognised and intensely studied as promising tools for monitoring structural conditions, detecting structural damage and assessing structural performance from a vast amount of monitoring data.

One of the main categories of such algorithms is data-driven SDI techniques, which extract features from measured data, identify structural damage and assess structural performance when manually or automatically interpreting the significance of potential changes in these features.

This special issue will present theoretical, computational and experimental work on data-driven structural damage identification and performance assessment technologies with possible applications in a wide range of engineering structures.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Data-driven structural identification
  • Structural damage detection
  • Structural model updating
  • Structural performance assessment
  • Moving load
  • Signal processing techniques
  • Sensors and instrumentation
  • Laboratory and in-field applications
