This is a collection of several applications for condition monitoring and damage identification in bridge structures. Bridge structural condition monitoring is essential since it can provide early warning of potential defects in bridges, which may induce catastrophic accidents and result in huge economic loss. Such bridge condition monitoring relies on sensing techniques, especially advanced sensing techniques that can provide detailed information on bridge structures. Additionally, postprocessing systems can interpret the captured data and warn of any potential faults. This book will give students a thorough understanding of bridge condition monitoring.
