Abstract

Decision-support for monitoring is performed using models in order to provide multiple interpretations of the same data set. This results in a space of possible interpretations of structural behaviour. Incremental addition of information for each interpretation modifies this space and helps engineers converge on realistic behaviours. Such experimentation and exploration of data interpretation leads to more rational decision-making in structural maintenance and life-cycle economies.
