The Value Of SHM To Manage Seismic Emergency
KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!

The management of civil infrastructures in the aftermath of a seismic event is a concern for decision makers, which have to choose quickly among alternative actions with limited knowledge on the actual structural conditions. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) information can support these decisions.

However, information come with a cost and the relevant benefit must be assessed before the acquisition of the SHM system is decided.

In this session, Professor Maria Pina Limongelli will introduce us to the Value of Information (VoI) analysis, which is a powerful tool to estimate such benefit and to optimize the design of the SHM system for each specific application.

This informative webinar + Q&A presents a number of applications of VoI in the field of civil engineering for exemplary case studies.

We look forward to seeing you there!
