Abstract

In today’s modern world, the development is at its peak. Due to increasing development, thousands of new buildings, tunnels, bridges, expressways, and many challenging and complex structure are being made day by day for suiting the increasing needs of people. The development is also seen in the new materials and techniques used in construction methods. Due to this increasing construction of vast structures, the analysis of structures has also become a major challenge as maintaining the integrity of the structure is of utmost importance. Traditional methods of structure analysis are not much beneficial and are not sufficient enough. Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a great development in the analysis of the structures for damage detection and determination of cracks and defects present in the structure. SHM system improves the safety and reliability of the structures; reduce maintenance costs and also helps in extending the useful life of the structures. Still the practical applications of this method are not much used and are still behind in the civil sector in India.
