Welcome to SDMA 2021!

As Corona pandemic continues worldwide with travel restrictions, SDMA 2021 will be held online, i.e. virtual conference without any physical participation. The online SDMA 2021 consists of three parts: 1) publication of papers in the conference proceedings and 2) online presentation of papers at the time of the conference via MS Teams, and 3) a pre-recorded video or ppt/pdf presentation with audio, which will be posted online and used for the evaluation of best presentation award.

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.
