The International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM) is a biennial workshop aiming to assess the current state-of-the-art technologies in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM), and to discuss and identify key and emerging breakthroughs and challenges in research and development that are critical and unique in SHM. This Special Issue is cooperating with the 11th IWSHM to be held in Stanford, CA, United States, 12–14 September 2017. Authors of outstanding papers related to aerospace SHM presented at the Workshop are invited to submit extended versions of their work to the Special Issue for publication.
Manuscripts are sought that report new research in the field of aerospace on:
- Selection process of monitored structure
- Specification and validation of monitoring concepts
- Selection process of suitable sensing systems
- Integration of SHM into a Usage/PHM monitoring and management system
- Handling and management of data/SHM information for maintenance and operational decision support
- Certification approach
