Abstract: Structural health monitoring (SHM) is becoming increasingly popular with bridge owners and administrators for bridge evaluation and management. At the same time, bridge security is also emerging as an important consideration for all infrastructure owners. But the role of SHM for bridge security aspects is not well understood or studied. A workshop was held with representative members of bridge owners, researchers, consultants, and security personnel to evaluate several aspects of this issue. This paper summarises these deliberations, subsequent data analysis, and pertinent results associated with various SHM technologies, measurement methods, and interaction between stakeholders. These results will be helpful to the SHM and security communities in understanding the role of SHM in enhancing bridge security.
