5th Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures

Share with :


The International Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures, SMAR 2019, will provide a forum for international scientists, engineers, enterprisers
and infrastructure managers to present and discuss the state-of-the-practice and recent advances in testing and monitoring technology, in structural modelling and assessment methods,
and in the application of advanced materials for structural rehabilitation. The conference will provide a platform for exploring the potential of international cooperation.
SMAR 2019 is the fifth conference and will be sponsored jointly by the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), Germany, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa), Switzerland, the Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Turkey and the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII).
