International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing

The aim of the International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing is to provide an overview of the latest breakthroughs in SHM and NDT and their interactions with various industrial sectors. Internationally acknowledged experts and researchers in the field of SHM, NDT and data processing will be speaking. The symposium will be a 2-day conference (4th and 5th of October 2018) with oral presentations, poster session and an industrial exhibition.

The symposium SHM-NDT 2018 provides a Forum for end users, scientists, equipment suppliers and for an interested audience to discuss current scientific topics and to examine products as well as present and future possibilities for SHM and NDT.

The Symposium is organized by htw saar University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the German Society for Nondestructive Testing (DGZfP e.V.), the French Society for Nondestructive Testing (Cofrend), INSA-Lyon, FITT gGmbH, Fraunhofer IZFP, Fraunhofer EZRT and

Topics of the Symposium

- Structural health monitoring

- NDT sensors, detectors and sources: ultrasound, acoustical emission, X-ray, thermography, eddy currents, EMAT, etc.

- Modeling and simulation

- Reliability, probability of detection

- Sensor data fusion

- Reconstruction techniques

- Defect detection & localisation methods

- Signal and image processing

Background and Objective

The International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing was held for the first time in November 2013, at Lyon, France, organized by the National Institute of Applied Sciences INSA-Lyon.

This event is intended to be a meeting point for international scientists, engineers, and other professionals in the field of SHM and NDT applied to monitor, characterize and control of materials and processes in industrial fields.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
