1st International Conference on Structural Damage Modelling and Assessment (SDMA 2020)
August 4-5 , 2020, Online conference

Welcome to SDMA 2020!

Due corona virus outbreak and for the safety of our participants, SDMA 2020 will be held online (virtual conference without any physical participation). The online SDMA 2020 consists of two parts: 1) publication of papers in the conference proceedings and 2) presentation of papers by a pre-recorded video or ppt/pdf presentation with audio.

The overall objective of the conference is to bring together international scientists and engineers in academia and industry 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.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
