Dear Er.  Jay Jadav,

See SEFI post dated 30th July 2014 by Er. Kunal Kansara. That can help you.

"Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is not at all a new concept, only changed over since last few decades is the approach, tools and techniques to monitor structures. "

Also ASCE has a Webinar on:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Condition Evaluation of Existing Structures - Concrete and Steel.

Purpose and Background


Before a structure is renovated, the designers and contractors typically need to assess the existing conditions. The extent of the required strengthening or repair often depends on the information gained during the evaluation. But what exactly needs to be discovered? Which evaluation techniques should be used? What to do if the design budget is insufficient for an in-depth evaluation? These and similar questions inevitably arise during condition assessments and they deserve answers. This webinar provides a primer on the topic of condition evaluation of existing concrete and steel structures. It explains which assessment protocols are available and which destructive and nondestructive evaluation techniques are most effective for various needs and situations. Real-life examples of dealing with the challenges involved illustrate the discussion.

After an overview of the condition evaluation standards and guidelines, the instructor explains which potential problems could be encountered for each material and how to recognize them. He then addresses the basic options for investigation. They include both destructive and nondestructive assessment methods as well as full-scale load testing. The latter can be done following the procedures contained in various standards.
