Abstract

This paper addresses the emerging technology here referred to as "remote structural monitoring and control in real time". The technology can improve resilience and sustainability of large-scale complex infrastructure systems under natural and manmade hazards. In this context, the paper attempts to initiate and promote the effort to expand the existing concept of structural monitoring into continuous, if not permanent, system performance monitoring and control, remotely and in real time. This is done in the spirit of advancing the existing SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system), widely deployed by utility providers for steady operations of their systems, into the next generation of SCADA system. For this reason, the paper first deals with the next generation SCADA for water distribution networks as a test-bed and then it presents examples involving bridges and other systems.
