Final Report - I-SAMCO (International Structural Assessment Monitoring and Control)

Project ID: 3766
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The project has become a focal point of reference for industries (especially for small and medium sized enterprises), consultants and other organisations interested in the transfer of knowledge and technology in the field of assessment, monitoring and control of structures of relevant civil and industrial interest. According to their final report, it has been found that I-SAMCO performed most necessary activities. Nevertheless the level on which such activities are performed in America or Asia has been found to be one order of magnitude higher than in Europe. In order to avoid slippage in Europe in this field, increased efforts at a European level are recommended. This can actively be studied in the field of earthquake engineering, where despite a higher demand in Europe, the funding is lacking.
