Prof. Dan Frangopol, Lehigh University, USA

- Dr Daniele Inaudi, CTO, Smartec SA, Switzerland

Prof. Jung‐Ryul Lee, KAIST, Korea

- Dr Abhishek Kundu, Cardiff University, UK

- Prof. Franklin Moon, Rutgers University, USA

- Prof. Carlo Rainieri, University of Molise, Italy

- Prof. Franck Schoefs, University of Nantes, France

Prof. S. A. Sudath Siriwardane, University of Stavanger, Norway

- Dr Helder Sousa, HS Consul\uDBC0\uDD9Fng, Portugal.

There is an urgent need for further progress in structural health monitoring for both civil and maritime structures. Maximising the availability and productivity of onshore and offshore infrastructure and marine vessels, whilst operating them safely and with minimal impact on the environment, is of major concern to operators. Many such structures are unique, e.g. ships such as FPSOs have specific constraints, loading characteristics and damage consequences that make them different to other offshore installations and conventional ships, and often more challenging to maintain and operate. Market research shows that there is a need for efficient SHM which could facilitate structural, fatigue and corrosion analyses and underpin risk-based inspections to address the structural integrity of onshore and offshore structures. Radical developments in the telecommunication, sensor and data processing technologies are transforming the way that asset management is conceived and carried out. Sensors and structural health monitoring systems are increasingly becoming an integral part of new and existing buildings, bridges, offshore structures and installations, and vessels. Sensing arrays can be permanently connected to distributed management networks so that owners, users, and in general, all those involved in the management process - connected via the Internet - can query in real time condition and performance during construction and operation. Whereas today the structural engineer conceives the single building or bridge as a stand-alone project, in future it is likely that structures will be regarded as nodes of a complex infrastructure network. Design specifications, real-time operation, and any decision on maintenance, upgrading and reconstruction of the single node will reflect the management policy of the whole system, properly accounting for concepts such as cost, risk and sustainability and structural health monitoring will play a critical role in these transformed approaches. HeaMES 2019 provides an ideal platform for innovative industry and practitioners, leading researchers, technology developers, and supply chain partners to meet. Bringing the pioneering experts together, the conference aims to promote exchange of ideas, recent research and ways forward to application and commercialisation.
