Title: Applications of smart materials in health monitoring of civil infrastructures

Abstract: The last few decades have witnessed the construction of vast infrastructural facilities in Singapore and other parts of the world. Now, the ageing of these structures is creating maintenance problems and increasingly prompting the development of automated, real-time and online structural health monitoring (SHM) and non-destructive evaluation (NDE) systems, which can provide cost-effective alternative to the traditional visual inspection method. Similar necessity is increasingly felt for civil and military aircraft, spaceships, heavy machinery, trains, and so on, where long endurance combined with intensive usage causes gradual but unnoticed deterioration, often leading to unexpected disasters, such the as the Columbia Shuttle breakdown.
