Structural health monitoring refers to the strategy and process of damage diagnosis and characterization of engineering structures. With the development of urbanization, various types of infrastructure and mechanical equipment provide people with convenient life services. It also shows the importance of structural health monitoring where symmetry is widely used. By analyzing the symmetry of the structure and using sensors to collect data, it is possible to study the performance of the structure itself. This is a hot topic in current research. The collected data contains the structural random vibration and environmental noise; good equipment can improve the efficiency of data collection; effective denoising methods with the knowledge of structural dynamics can extract the characteristic parameters of the structure from the data.
In this Special Issue on symmetry, we mainly discuss the application of symmetry in various structural health monitoring. For example, considering the health monitoring of a known structure, by obtaining the static or dynamic response of the structure, using different signal processing methods, including some advanced filtering methods, to remove the influence of environmental noise, and extract structural feature parameters to determine the safety of the structure. These damage diagnosis methods can also be effectively applied to various types of infrastructure and mechanical equipment. For this reason, the vibration control of various structures and the knowledge of random structure dynamics should be considered, which will promote the rapid development of the structural health monitoring. Among them, signal extraction and evaluation methods are also worthy of study. The improvement of signal acquisition instruments and acquisition methods improves the accuracy of data. A good evaluation method will help to correctly understand the performance with different types of infrastructure and mechanical equipment.
