The subject dealt with in this Bulletin seems quite remote from the worries of the average welder. Nevertheless it should be encouraging to know that besides the great progress done in engineering design and testing, the present trend requires to find ways to install suitable sensors within structures as they are built. The purpose is to know at any time with confidence what is the real structural health condition.
It is hoped that such timely knowledge will reduce the cost of periodic inspection and repair, will prevent the unexpected occurrence of sudden collapse, will give advance notice of impending failures, will ease repair procedures, will help in extending with confidence the useful structure life, will confirm or improve the theoretical design assumptions, will simplify code requirements.
