    Data Driven Methods for Civil Structural Health Monitoring and Resilience: Latest Developments and Applications provides a comprehensive overview of data-driven methods for structural health monitoring (SHM) and resilience of civil engineering structures, mostly based on artificial intelligence or other advanced data science techniques. This allows existing structures to be turned into smart structures, thereby allowing them to provide intelligible information about their state of health and performance on a continuous, relatively real-time basis. Artificial-intelligence-based methodologies are becoming increasingly more attractive for civil engineering and SHM applications; machine learning and deep learning methods can be applied and further developed to transform the available data into valuable information for engineers and decision makers.

    Vasilis Sarhosis is an associate professor of structural engineering at the School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds, UK. He holds both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in civil engineering from the University of Leeds and worked as a consultant civil engineer in the UK. His main expertise lies in the development of advanced high-fidelity models of nonlinear response to quantify degradation and understand the long-term behavior of existing masonry infrastructure stock (e.g., bridges, tunnels, historic structures, and monuments) subjected to extreme loading conditions. Recently, he pioneered the development of the Cloud2DEM procedure to transform three-dimensional (3D) point clouds of complex structures obtained from photogrammetry and laser scanning to 3D discrete element models. The approach enables the realistic structural analysis of "as-is" masonry infrastructure in an accurate and computationally efficient manner. Dr. Sarhosis is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering (FIMEchE), and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in the UK. He is currently chairing the National Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Structures of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH-UK), which is part of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). He has edited a book on computational modeling of masonry structures using the discrete element method and published more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles. His research has been cited more than 1,500 times, and his h-index is 22 (Scopus). For more information, please visit his website (https://www.sarhosis.com/home-1).
