The need for structural safety assessments, due to the high vulnerability of the built-up heritage (buildings and transport infrastructures), represents a strong stimulus for the development of advanced techniques for structural health monitoring at different scales (single construction, transport networks and territorial scale).
The Special Issue is focused on the single or combined use of traditional and innovative techniques that can be used to check the health state of constructions and infrastructure networks.
The goal is the clear detection of the damage or degradation of the structural components, affecting the vulnerability of single or grouped constructions.
Among all monitoring techniques, when dealing with large infrastructure networks, the use of satellite data (particularly interferometric satellite synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) data) proved to be helpful for the monitoring activities, allowing for a preliminary ranking of the critical structures.
The goal of this Special Issue is the definition of the methodologies and the presentation of applications for structural health monitoring and resilience assessments of the built-up environment. Multidisciplinary contributions are especially encouraged. Potential topics for submission include but are not limited to:
- Structural assessment and monitoring of existing buildings and transport infrastructures;
- Structural assessment and monitoring at urban and territorial levels;
- Processing techniques for data elaboration and interpretation;
- Integration of InSAR data with on-site information;
- Integration of geological, geotechnical and InSAR data for structural health monitoring;
- Artificial intelligence techniques applied to the management and interpretation of monitoring data;
- Traditional and innovative techniques for damage detection and classification from monitoring data;
- Importance of structural health monitoring in emergency management and service conditions to support the decisions of the involved stakeholders.

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. Infrastructures is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
