The European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (EWSHM) is a leading conference that provides a platform for professionals to exchange knowledge and advancements in the field of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and related disciplines. The workshop aims to showcase the latest achievements in SHM, demonstrate cutting-edge SHM technologies, and foster the development and implementation of future SHM initiatives.
EWSHM 2024 will gather experts from various fields, including fundamental research, numerical simulation, structural monitoring in industries, engineering ideas and technologies, prognostics, and structures' life cycle health management. Participants will have the opportunity to express and discuss relevant issues pertaining to SHM, such as monitoring techniques (visual, mechanical, acoustic, electromagnetic, thermal, etc.), sensor technologies, signal processing (feature extraction, machine learning), and their practical application.
The workshop will also focus on the role of SHM in different industries, including aerospace, automotive, railway, naval, energy, manufacturing, and civil engineering. Attendees will reflect on SHM applications and explore how engineering concepts and available technologies can be utilized to enhance structural monitoring and ensure the longevity and performance of engineering structures.
In addition to the technical sessions, EWSHM 2024 will feature a dedicated space for demonstrations, showcasing real-world applications of SHM technologies. This interactive component aims to provide attendees with hands-on experiences and a better understanding of the challenges and potential solutions in implementing SHM. Major demonstrators will be available, highlighting the readiness of SHM technologies for practical use.
EWSHM has a rich history, originating in 2000 and running biennially in different cities across Europe. While traditionally referred to as a workshop, the event has evolved into a conference-like format, attracting a growing number of exhibitors and expanding the demonstration of SHM applications. EWSHM 2024 will continue along this trajectory, emphasizing the importance of practical demonstrations and seeking to address barriers to widespread SHM adoption.
Join us at EWSHM 2024 to connect with leading experts, discover the latest advancements in SHM, explore innovative applications, and contribute to the advancement of structural engineering breakthroughs. Together, we can shape the future of SHM and enhance the performance and safety of engineering structures.
