I would like to bring to your attention an intensive three-day course "Invitation to nondestructive evaluation and structural health monitoring" that will be given by Dr. Zahra Sharif Khodaei (Imperial College London) from Tuesday, 24 May, to Thursday, 26 May 2022, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague.

There is no fee associated with the course, but registration is required because of limited capacity. Full details on the course are available here.

Course summary

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is a modern technology with the potential to significantly improve the maintenance and repair of engineering structures. It can act as a viable alternative to the commonly utilized None-Destructive Inspection (NDI). The basis of SHM is the application of permanently fixed sensors on the structure combined with the necessity of a minimum of manual intervention to monitor the structural integrity. This enables continuous monitoring of the structure and thus detection of the defect at a very early stage to move away from Planned Maintenance and towards Condition Based Maintenance providing longer service life of structures, reduced downtime, and lower maintenance cost. This course provides an overview of prominent structural health monitoring techniques for damage detection and localization utilizing ultrasonic guided waves in composites utilized for aeronautical structures. However, the concepts and techniques are equally applied to other engineering disciplines, such as civil engineering structures, offshore structures, and machinery, to name a few. It will be beneficial to master- and Ph.D.-level students, engineers, and researchers to introduce the concept and possible applications.
