Structural Durability & Health Monitoring

ISSN: 1930-2983 (Print)

ISSN: 1930-2991 (Online)

Aims & Scope

In order to maintain a reasonable cost for large scale structures such as airframes, offshore structures, nuclear plants etc., it is generally accepted that improved methods for structural integrity and durability assessment are required. Structural Durability & Health Monitoring (SDHM) had emerged as an active area of research for fatigue life and damage accumulation prognostics.

This is important for design and maintains of new and ageing structures.
The potential benefits include:

  • Increased quality and reliability by application of innovative practices and techniques

  • Reduce costs by better design enabling lighter structures (hence fuel efficient), fewer inspection intervals (hence reduce operating costs), less frequent replacement or repair of parts (hence reduce wastage of structures)

  • Improved safety and performance and reduce costly in service redesign

Structural Durability & Health Monitoring publishes original, high quality research papers, communications, and review articles related to structural health monitoring and durability. The aim of the journal is to bring together latest scientific and technological developments in the field.
The scope of the journal is multidisciplinary and contributions are sought from engineers, material scientist and applied mathematications. 
This journal is an indispensable reading and publishing area for all scientists, researchers, engineers, university and professional teachers, industrialists, and people in business interested in inventing, developing, implementing, commercializing, and using processes and products based totally or partly on structural durability and health monitoring.

Papers are sought that contribute to the following general topics related to Structural Durability and Health Monitoring:

  • Structural integrity assessment

  • Self-diagnostics, prognostics and condition-based maintenance

  • Fracture mechanics

  • Damage mechanics

  • Smart materials for damage monitoring

  • Damage tolerance assessment

  • Fatigue

  • Structural durability assessment

  • Self-repairable structures

  • Structural repairs and their monitoring

  • Integration of structural health monitoring and control

Publication Frequency



The journal is owned by Tech Science Press.


Society Collaboration

Jiangsu Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (JSTAM) has become a major sponsor of Structural Durability & Health Monitoring (SDHM).

Jiangsu Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (JSTAM), established in 1961, has currently over 4500 individual members and 105 council members. All are representative and authoritative experts on mechanics in Jiangsu Province, including 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 7 scientists enjoying special governmental subsidies of the State Council and 5 Yangtze River scholars. The JSTAM has always held the philosophy of gathering talent in academic science and seeking development by services to maintain leadership from two perspectives, leading among the academic associations of similar categories in China and leading among the associations for mechanics at the provincial level in China. The mission of the JSTAM is to enhance four kinds of service, specifically, serving by innovation-driven development, serving by consultation to the party committee and the government for decision making, serving by the promotion of national scientific quality and serving through scientific and technological workers as led by the home for members, the institution of public trust and the think-tank base. The JSTAM features talents and technical resources in terms of vibration control, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and cross mechanics; in addition, the association is capable of providing talent, information and technical services in the fields of aeronautics, astronautics, civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, energy, transportation, machinery and materials, etc.
