TL;DR: Technical challenges that must be addressed if SHM is to gain wider application are discussed in a general manner and the historical overview and summarizing the SPR paradigm are provided.
Abstract: This introduction begins with a brief history of SHM technology development. Recent research has begun to recognise that a productive approach to the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) problem is to regard it as one of statistical pattern recognition (SPR); a paradigm addressing the problem in such a way is described in detail herein as it forms the basis for the organisation of this book. In the process of providing the historical overview and summarising the SPR paradigm, the subsequent chapters in this book are cited in an effort to show how they fit into this overview of SHM. In the conclusions are stated a number of technical challenges that the authors believe must be addressed if SHM is to gain wider acceptance.
TL;DR: In this article, a review of the past and recent developments in system identification of nonlinear dynamical structures is presented, highlighting their assets and limitations and identifying future directions in this research area.
Abstract: This survey paper contains a review of the past and recent developments in system identification of nonlinear dynamical structures. The objective is to present some of the popular approaches that have been proposed in the technical literature, to illustrate them using numerical and experimental applications, to highlight their assets and limitations and to identify future directions in this research area. The fundamental differences between linear and nonlinear oscillations are also detailed in a tutorial.

TL;DR: The concept of discordancy from the statistical discipline of outlier analysis is used to signal deviance from the norm in a statistical method for damage detection.
Abstract: This paper constitutes a study of a statistical method for damage detection. The lowest level of fault detection is considered so that the methods are simply required to signal deviations from normal condition; i.e., the problem is one of novelty detection. In this paper, the concept of discordancy from the statistical discipline of outlier analysis is used to signal deviance from the norm. The method is demonstrated on four case studies of engineering interest: one simulation, two pseudo-experimental and one experimental.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors explicitly state and justify structural health monitoring axioms, and stimulate discussion and thought within the community regarding these axiomatizations, in order to facilitate new researchers in the field a starting point that alleviates the need to review the vast amounts of literature in this field.
Abstract: Based on the extensive literature that has developed on structural health monitoring over the last 20 years, it can be argued that this field has matured to the point where several fundamental axioms, or gen eral principles, have emerged. The intention of this paper is to explicitly state and justify these axioms. In so doing, it is hoped that two subsequent goals are facilitated. First, the statement of such axioms will give new researchers in the field a starting point that alleviates the need to review the vast amounts of literature in this field. Second, the authors hope to stimulate discussion and thought within the community regarding these axioms.

TL;DR: This survey tries to provide a structured and comprehensive overview of the research on anomaly detection by grouping existing techniques into different categories based on the underlying approach adopted by each technique.
Abstract: Anomaly detection is an important problem that has been researched within diverse research areas and application domains. Many anomaly detection techniques have been specifically developed for certain application domains, while others are more generic. This survey tries to provide a structured and comprehensive overview of the research on anomaly detection. We have grouped existing techniques into different categories based on the underlying approach adopted by each technique. For each category we have identified key assumptions, which are used by the techniques to differentiate between normal and anomalous behavior. When applying a given technique to a particular domain, these assumptions can be used as guidelines to assess the effectiveness of the technique in that domain. For each category, we provide a basic anomaly detection technique, and then show how the different existing techniques in that category are variants of the basic technique. This template provides an easier and more succinct understanding of the techniques belonging to each category. Further, for each category, we identify the advantages and disadvantages of the techniques in that category. We also provide a discussion on the computational complexity of the techniques since it is an important issue in real application domains. We hope that this survey will provide a better understanding of the different directions in which research has been done on this topic, and how techniques developed in one area can be applied in domains for which they were not intended to begin with.
TL;DR: This paper attempts to summarise and review the recent research and developments in diagnostics and prognostics of mechanical systems implementing CBM with emphasis on models, algorithms and technologies for data processing and maintenance decision-making.
Abstract: Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is a maintenance program that recommends maintenance decisions based on the information collected through condition monitoring. It consists of three main steps: data acquisition, data processing and maintenance decision-making. Diagnostics and prognostics are two important aspects of a CBM program. Research in the CBM area grows rapidly. Hundreds of papers in this area, including theory and practical applications, appear every year in academic journals, conference proceedings and technical reports. This paper attempts to summarise and review the recent research and developments in diagnostics and prognostics of mechanical systems implementing CBM with emphasis on models, algorithms and technologies for data processing and maintenance decision-making. Realising the increasing trend of using multiple sensors in condition monitoring, the authors also discuss different techniques for multiple sensor data fusion. The paper concludes with a brief discussion on current practices and possible future trends of CBM.
