Special Issue "Structural Health Monitoring and Their Applications Across Industry"
A special issue of Inventions (ISSN 2411-5134). This special issue belongs to the section "Inventions and Innovation in Electrical Engineering/Energy/Communications".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Structural health monitoring is used to evaluate the “state” of a structure at every moment during its life. It involves the integration of structure design, sensors, smart materials, data transmission and analysis. Structural health monitoring is the new way of non-destructive evaluation, however these techniques have not been widely used in practical engineering due to wiring problems associated with large-scale structural health monitoring.
The aim of this Special Issue is for researchers to gain an in-depth understanding of structural health monitoring techniques and analyze the different applications through various cross-industry case studies, including oil and gas, rail, nuclear, aerospace, thermal and renewable energy, highlighting the latest developments on testing methods and sensor development and promoting more accurate results for defect identification.

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. Inventions is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
