Abstract: Based on the similarity between knowledge discovery from data bases (KDD) and Structural health monitoring (SHM), and considered the particularity of SHM problems, a four-step framework of SHM is proposed. The framework extends the final goal of SHM from detecting damages to extracting knowledge to facilitate decision making. The purposes and proper methods of each step of this framework are discussed. To demonstrate the proposed SHM framework, a specific SHM method which is consisted by second order structural parameter identification as feature extraction and statistical control chart analysis of identified stiffness for feature analysis is then presented. Through clarifying the goal and hierarchy of extracting useful knowledge of SHM problems, the framework has potential to facilitate the further development of SHM.

Abstract: The existing long-span bridges deteriorate with time due to fatigue, overloading, corrosion and environmental effects. To date, condition evaluation of the existing long-span bridges is important to carrying out the activities related to maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement of bridges. In this paper, a methodology was developed to evaluate the condition of the existing long-span bridges. The analytic hierarchy process was combined with the fuzzy synthesis. A procedure is given for condition rating of the existing long-span bridges as well. A bridge as the example is evaluated by this method and the results show that the damage of the bridge is marginal, which is same as the conclusion obtained from the traditional methods.

Abstract: The assessment of the risk probability and risk consequence of existing long-span bridges has become a focus in both research and engineering applications. In this paper, a process to assess the risk consequence of existing long-span bridges is developed. The analytic hierarchy process was combined with the fuzzy synthesis. In accordance with the features of existing long-span bridges, risk consequences are classified and the model of the risk consequence is simulated. A bridge as the example is evaluated by this process and the results show that the risk consequence of the bridge is negligible. Combining the risk probability and risk consequence gives the comprehensive risk of this bridge is negligible.
