Continually increasing demands on infrastructures mean that maintenance and renewal require timely, appropriate action that maximizes benefits while minimizing cost. To be as well informed as possible, decision-makers must have an optimal understanding of an infrastructure's condition-what it is now, and what it is expected to be in the future. Written by two highly respected engineers, the first volume, Infrastructure Health in Civil Engineering: Theory and Components, integrates the decision making concept into theoretical and practical issues. It includes: * An overview of the infrastructure health in civil engineering (IHCE) and associated theories * In-depth description of the four components of SHCE: measurements, structural identification, damage identification, and decision making * Discussion of how IHCE and asset management are applied * An exploration of infrastructure health management Built to correspond to the ideas presented in its companion volume, Applications and Management, this is an invaluable guide to optimized, cost-saving methods that will help readers meet safety specifications for new projects, as well as aging infrastructures at high risk for failure.
