One of the methods that is becoming more popular amongst engineers is the use of monitoring techniques to establish the real behaviour of the structures and to determine the on going rate of deterioration in order to implement repair works at the right time. This paper describes the use of monitoring techniques as an approach to prolong life of structures through describing the general strategy, available instruments and techniques. In addition, case studies are presented for projects on which monitoring is being used. For the covering abstract see ITRD E106406.
