Unified Performance Prediction Model for Structures and Infrastructures Incorporating Diverse Monitoring Data

(PREMISES)

 
Project Overview
 
The continuous ageing of the population of buildings and infrastructures creates an increasing need in civil engineering society for the development of methodologies and tools for the efficient monitoring of these structures to ascertain that they are still safe and capable of withstanding various environmental effects (e.g. corrosion), and potentially catastrophic events (e.g. earthquakes).
 
The PREMISES project aimed to develop performance prediction models, which incorporate and combine in novel way corrosion and strain data from remote periodic monitoring, for more accurate and effective appraisal of structural performance.
