PROCEEDINGS OF THE WORKSHOP ON ENGINEERING STRUCTURAL HEALTH, MAY 16-17, 2002, NEW YORK, NEW YORK

The Engineering Structural Health workshop brought representatives from infrastructure owners and government officials, practicing engineers, academia, and sensor/equipment manufacturers together to discuss the current state of structural health engineering. The goal of the workshop was to increase communication between the groups involved in this field as well as review necessary aspects of successful bridge infrastructure condition assessment. The major outcomes of the workshop were: (1) Increased understanding of owners' need to improve condition assessment of bridges; and (2) Increased awareness of the problems that need addressing to understand and advance the structural health engineering field. The material provided in this publication is an assemblage of all the notes that were taken during the deliberations in the breakaway sessions by record keepers and all other attendees. Whenever possible, each of the sections of this document include (1) pertinent quotes from the attendees, (2) specific problems the attendees discussed, (3) specific "wish lists" of the attendees, and (4) interaction and integration issues.
