Welcome to the Structural Health Monitoring Laboratory (SHML) at CSIR-SERC! Structural Health Monitoring plays an important role in the design and performance assessment of structures and structural components, in particular, in critical application areas where safety and integrity are of paramount importance. SHML seeks to develop innovative methodologies and strategies for increasing the safety and reliability of civil engineering structures. Our research is focused on the areas of structural health monitoring, performance evaluation of civil infra structures, development of methodologies for pipeline monitoring and vibration based assessment of structures. One of the major activities of the laboratory is to apply the techniques and expertise to solve industrial problems. Our lab has carried out several consultancy/sponsored research projects for many organizations from Government, public and private sectors. The Lab continuously strives to be a focal point for structural health monitoring of civil engineering structures in India.
