Recent progress in sensing technology and techniques have allowed us to gain insight into the diagnosis of diseases as well as determine the remaining service life of a device. The influence of such progress has also found its place in the diagnosis of structural conditions. In the field of structural health monitoring, researchers have made great strides in applying new sensing technology towards determining the integrity of a wide variety of structures and warning occupants of impending danger due to imminent structural failure. This Special Issue will showcase some of the latest efforts advancing the frontiers of structural health monitoring. Topics include, but are not limited to: sensors for structural health monitoring; damage detection and characterization/feature extraction algorithms; data transmission for embedded systems; structural warning systems; validation of structural health monitoring techniques; case studies of health monitoring of infrastructures (bridges, tunnels, pipelines, …); model-based structural service life prediction methods; etc.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
