Dramatic advancements in structural health monitoring in Civil Engineering have been made over the last few decades. Structural health monitoring has also become much more popular because monitoring sensors have become more compatible with field applications, economically viable, and better understood among engineers. Well-executed health monitoring systems could provide warnings for potential failures or could enable substantial savings in budgets by optimizing the construction process in some cases. However, poorly executed monitoring systems could create confusion amongst engineers and have disastrous consequences.
The aim of "Advances in Structural Health Monitoring in Civil Engineering" is to provide up-to-date knowledge of structural health monitoring sensors and the usage of sensors. Articles that provide information such as case studies of structural health monitoring, innovative and fast data analysis methods, the pros and cons of different sensors, the evaluation of current practice, the assessment and usage of indirect (soft, non-contact) sensors such as cell phone signals and aerial photos, overarching sensing methods such as ubiquitous systems by merging conventional direct sensors and indirect sensors, and other relevant issues in the broad discipline of Civil Engineering are welcome.
This Special Issue will provide the current practice and new perspectives in structural health monitoring in Civil Engineering so this new area in Civil Engineering may advance to a new paradigm.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
