This introductory book presents procedures for the analysis of signals and the characterization of systems in civil engineering. The two main topics of this book are at the core of several fast-growing areas in civil engineering today, including: non-destructive testing, system identification, image processing, local or remote monitoring, smart structures, dynamic loading, and feedback control systems in transportation and structural engineering. The authors have provided the readers with a Web site dedicated to this book which includes readily downloadable algorithms for numerical examples, other examples and applications, and errata. Complete with end-of-chapter exercises, this book is appropriate as an upper undergraduate/graduate level textbook or as a reference source for the research or practicing engineer.
