Preface

  • It is important to know the displacement response of steel bridges under live loads to ensure that they are properly maintained. In particular, with regard to fatigue damage, if the bridge deform... Read More

  • The qualities of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) strain data acquired in the long-term structural health monitoring of an existing concrete bridge were evaluated in this study. The possible sources of ... Read More

  • Health condition monitoring of bridge structures is attracting considerable attention, conventionally relying on visual inspection, and measurement-based methods that involve sensors installed di... Read More

  • In this study, a fundamental application of a wireless acceleration sensor network system was carried out by conducting two bridge vibration experiments in autumn and winter. Seasonal effects on ... Read More

  • In this study, short-term monitoring was carried out for an existing long-span bridge, which has been managed by a local government, with the aim of evaluating its present performance toward plan... Read More

  • The structural monitoring of civil engineering structures such as bridges has been of importance recently, and one of the key issues in structural monitoring is to grasp the dynamic behaviors of ... Read More

  • Exploring biomaterials/molecules as a reducing/capping agent for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles has set a new trend in green nanotechnology with improved environmental safety. Herein, a fac... Read More
