Aims and scope

The Journal of Civil Structural Health Monitoring (JCSHM) publishes articles to advance the understanding and the application of health monitoring methods for the condition assessment and management of civil infrastructure systems.
JCSHM serves as a focal point for sharing knowledge and experience in technologies impacting the discipline of Civil Structural Health Monitoring, especially in terms of condition assessments, forensic analysis, load capacity ratings and service life estimations.
Original articles to further the state-of-the-art in diagnostics and prognostics for civil infrastructure systems including highways, bridges, buildings, airports, seaports, railroads, water resources systems, oil and gas pipelines, and similar topics are welcomed.
There is an important role for papers that address the application of principles, either successfully or from a lesson learned aspect. This is of course the key facet of engineering as opposed to basic science – engineers take ideas and develop them into applications and use in the field. Purely theoretical and or numerical submissions without field applications or laboratory verifications and assessments are not accepted for publication in JCSHM.
