In the conventional SHM system, the expensive cost for purchase and installation of the SHM system components, such as sensors, data loggers, computers, and connecting cables, is a big obstruction. To guarantee that measurement data are reliably collected, SHM systems generally employ coaxial wires for communication between sensors and the repository. However, the installation of coaxial wires in structures is generally very expensive and labor-intensive .
Wireless techniques are mainly associated with to find out the ground information like land use and land cover, possible urban area, solid waste disposal site selection, possible best way for roads etc. Ramanjaneyulu Smart Wireless Technology Smart wireless sensor is an emerging sensor with the following essential features: on-board micro-processor, sensing capability, wireless communication, battery powered, and low cost Nagayama, When many sensors are implemented on a SHM system for a sizable civil structure, wireless communication between sensors and data repository seems to be attractive in the aspects of the cost .
For the improvement in SHM techniques, new sensors are developed. Different sensors system like Micro- electromechanical system MEMS , Nuclear magnetic resonance NMR for accelerometers and to detect chloride ions are used for the detection of defects [17, 18].
These sensors are typically targeted to monitor specific defect like concrete cracking, bridge breaking, and steel reinforcement corrosion , this is one major defect of wireless technique.
For e. Revolution on wired technique invents wireless smart sensors hence find new solution for economical aspect. Radar technology, robust techniques largely depends on the incident rays, absorbed, transmitted and reflected rays.
5th Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures
Robust technique uses X-rays and gamma-rays to get visual images of interiors of structures such as steel cables, slabs etc. Increase in research due to challenging environment, different techniques comes into practice in civil, mechanical, aerospace field. Straser and Kiremidjian, first proposed a design of a low-cost wireless modular monitoring system WiMMS for civil structures by integrating a microcontroller with a wireless radio.
Lynch et al. And in present damage detection reported to the base station in sleeping mode  which was shown in figure. Hence through variation of the data finally gives clue to detect risky zone or detect zone. Ramanjaneyulu The component on wired as well as in Wireless Techniques are almost same but only difference is position of sensor, but overall theme is to monitor the health of structure.
SHM is not limited within civil engineering. Its application field increases its demand. Due to age factor and environment factor, Structure gets deteriorated and steel structures got corroded. Due to that reason, structures strength decreases regarding serviceability and load bearing approach. For detecting it several techniques investigated and researchers still doing for up gradation. Although SHM techniques can be used in several structure like beam  shell  and in pipeline also. Using those techniques on such a structure enhances to up gradation for the effective efficiency as well as secure public service.
Due to increasing cost for inspection and the demand of periodic investigation of defect on the structure, previous maintenance concept of periodic inspection is no longer in use. Thus present SHM techniques is seeking the use of intelligent powerful data acquisition unit and a fast and direct monitoring and maintenance planning concept is required . Different types of structural health monitoring techniques have their own advantage and limitations.
About these proceedings
As a technician, we have to look for cost effective, precise and accurate methods. The state of structural system subjected to those physical and climatic processes is changing continuously. The condition of the structure may not predict without considering both aleatory and epistemic uncertainties. So, it is possible if we monitor structure in periodic sequence, through it we have to consider the techniques which give standard and believable result in terms of structural integrity and economic approach  Uses of vibration control techniques, impedance based approach leads higher cost and for periodic monitoring installation charge may add up but through these techniques we can get accurate result.
Sensors can be used for various materials. It is old techniques, which gives bases for further innovation This is emerging new technique in which, Sensed data is recorded of sensors, and detecting technology. Little bit Costly techniques because if we need to detect, we Initial cost is higher but in life time analysis, cost becomes less and have to install is periodically.
Data Fusion techniques Used principle in this technique is same as in Impedance based approach but in this process of integrating data and knowledge representing the same real world object in consistent, accurate, and useful representation. Vibration Control Technique Mostly used technique from ancient time, is depends on Vibration applied from the sensors, Damping, and signature getting from system. Care should be taken in it, due to vibration structure may further damage. It is continuous or periodic monitoring used in wireless and wired technology. In this echo of sound is measured.
Smart sensors wireless technology Recent development and applications of smart sensors and sensing systems have a wide area of structural health monitoring including Optical Fiber Sensors OFS , piezoelectric sensors, smart wireless sensors, and vision-based displacement measurement systems. They have been developed to complement the limitations of the conventional sensors such as electric resistance strain gauges, wired accelerometers, and extensometers, and to measure new types of structural characteristics such as electromechanical impedances and guided waves  Many Research are doing corresponding to Wireless smart sensing system for full scale structure.
By this damage index we can able to compare the difference of healthy and damaged structure. RESULTS The established SHM have proven the well defined effort on the sustainability and safety of the structure and have forecasted the greater possibility in monitoring and control of structural damage and reduce the incidental loss of lives making the SHM necessary in the life structures like Bridge and Towers.
By reviewing journals of SHM, the fact found is four step processes 1 Operational evaluation 2 Data acquisition, normalization and cleansing 3 Feature selection and information consideration and 4 Statistical model development for the feature determination is common for all the techniques . By following these steps, apart from simple structure such as axial rods , beams , thin plates , shell  and framed structure , experimental implementation of the SHM techniques can be applied on several complex structures.
In present Days Structural health monitoring techniques for Pipeline are in the research phase for getting higher efficiency to damage detection. Ramanjaneyulu Talking about the efficiency that sensors can give the data for probable damage detection is much concern about the number, area covered by sensor and the type of material that structure is built. For choosing the SHM techniques first its need to collect the features like material used, efficiency required and area that need to be sensed of structure has to be noted and the cast outflow for the corresponding work should be determined.
Wired techniques seems to be used in large scale than wireless techniques because of its popularity and its efficiency, among wired technique Vibration based approach and acoustic emission approach more commonly used than wireless techniques. Whatever the methods and systems that are discussed above speaks the requirement of regular inspection and use of expensive instruments in the detection and identification of the damage in the structures. So there is need of cost effective and more efficient techniques in SHM for its revolutionary implementation and make the world better.
Remarkable improvement on the sensors like one sensor can be used for different materials is needed. For periodic monitoring, wired techniques have a difficult for installation and hence such kind of system is needed though which we can monitor structure in regular time interval. From the review of different techniques, newly emerging wireless techniques have a more scope in terms of economic aspects, time constraint and easiness although several research are carried out in both the methods and remarkable diminutive amendments on the system, software algorithm was found.
Still if we do research for a SHM like as remote sensing, for it higher resolution image is needed and it will add up new resolution in from all aspects of life time assessment. Indeed SHM systems are more important day by day especially on public structures like Bridge, Towers, Transportation means for the human safety and environmental sustainability approach too.

A low-cost POF-based accelerometer was used in the characterization of a civil engineering structural component, located in a building at the University of Aveiro Campus, being used to estimate its natural frequency with a relative error of 0. Optical fiber sensors take advantage of the fibers properties, such as immunity to electromagnetic interference and electrical isolation. They are very attractive for use in hostile environments, like submerse environments or flammable atmospheres where electrical currents might pose a hazard.
The advantages of POF itself should also be considered, like resistance to hash environments, robustness, flexibility, low-cost interrogation units and high numeric aperture lower cost components. The paper demonstrates the feasibility of using a low-cost acceleration system based on a POF accelerometer on the dynamic monitoring of a civil engineering structure, aiming its natural frequency evaluation.
