Structural health monitoring (SHM) uses sensors to provide reliable, accurate, in-time and actionable information on the health condition and performance of structures. SHM allows the optimization of design and maintenance of structures, improves their safety and resilience, while reducing operational costs. Therefore, SHM is more and more accepted and used in real-life settings. SHM involves sensing and data analysis, and thus, its effectiveness depends on the technological advances in these fields.
The aim of this Special Issue is to illustrate the current state-of-the-art in sensing techniques as applied to civil SHM. We invite papers covering any advance in sensors and sensor network for civil structures, including new sensors and sensing technologies; self-sensing materials; innovative sensor networks; novel data analysis algorithms for sensor networks; innovative application of existing technologies; any other ground-breaking technological solution showing the possibilities of civil SHM.

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
