NIT Jamshedpur Conducting Short Term Course on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)

The Department of Mechanical Engineering of NIT Jamshedpur is conducting one-week Short Term Course on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) during May 27-June 1, 2019. Register by  May 7, 2019.

Who can Attend?

Students (UG/PG/Ph.D.), Faculty from Science/Engineering and Industry persons/Scientists


The purpose of this course is firstly to provide an introduction to well-known and established system identification methods on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and secondly to introduce more advanced, state-of the-art tools, able to tackle the challenges associated with actual implementation.

Focus will be given on full scale applications and field deployments that illustrate the workings and effectiveness of the introduced monitoring schemes. The deployments will involve monitoring of large scale landmark structures during regular operation as well as large scale systems that have undergone damage techniques.

  1. The course syllabus will also involve advanced computational tools for uncertainty quantification and structural reliability in an effort to provide the link between monitoring and structural integrity assessment. Following are the specific objective of the proposed course:Spur the research and development of new SHM technologies
  2. Train students to provide an outstanding workforce pool in SHM technology areas
  3. Understand the primary data features used to identify, locate and quantify damage
  4. Discuss the practical implementation issues, including the influence of operational and environmental variability on the SHM process

Number of seats: 50
