Abstract: In the context of sustainable development, the establishment of a procedure for the management and maintenance of the built heritage is one of the main interest for the owners of Civil Engineering structures. In this context, SENSO project (Strategy of non destructive evaluation for the monitoring of concrete structures) aims to develop methodologies for nondestructive testing of structures based on a multi-techniques approach. The approach is first to define the theoretical basis of this methodology on models able to reproduce the usual pathologies. The aim is to define the sensitivity of the techniques, the variability of the evaluation, and the methodologies for the enhancement of the measurements. The enhancement of measurements resulting from the combined use of techniques is based on data fusion, by developing a tool able to be used on real structures. This communication presents the strategy carried out and the first results obtained for non destructive evaluation of the indicators. It also emphasizes how the variability of measurements can be taken into account and how data fusion can be used for the evaluation of indicators.
