Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Structural Damage Modelling and Assessment: Sdma 2021, 4-5 August, Ghent University, Belgium (Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering #204) (Paperback)
This book comprises the select proceedings from the 2nd International Conference on Structural Damage Modelling and Assessment (SDMA 2021) held in the city of Ghent, Belgium, on 4-5 August 2021. It discusses the recent advances in fields related to damage modelling, damage detection and assessment, non-destructive testing and evaluation, structure integrity and structural health monitoring. The conference covers all research topics and applications relevant to structural damage modelling and assessment using theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques. This book is useful to scientists and engineers in academia and industry who are interested in the field of structural damage and integrity for disaster risk reduction.
Professor Magd Abdel Wahab is Full Professor of applied mechanics in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University, Belgium, and Adjunct Full Professor in several universities in Vietnam and China. He received his B.Sc. in Civil Engineering and his M.Sc. in Structural Mechanics, both from Cairo University. He completed his Ph.D. in Fracture Mechanics at KU Leuven, Belgium, and was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science from the University of Surrey. He has published more than 520 scientific papers in solid mechanics and dynamics of structures and edited more than 30 books and proceedings. His research interests include fracture mechanics, damage mechanics, fatigue of materials, durability and dynamics and vibration of structures.
