The need for civil infrastructure to have a longer and more informed life, coupled with recent developments in technology, has led to a growth in the use of SHM in asset management. Improved information and understanding gained from SHM can provide support to those responsible and/or tasked with making engineering judgements and decisions on when and how to intervene in the life cycle of infrastructure assets.
