The FP5 Growth thematic network SAMCO has been active from October 2001 until March 2006 within the framework of the Growth program. It has become a focal point of reference in the field of assessment, monitoring and control of civil and industrial structures, in particular the transportation infrastructure (bridges, etc.). The European Association for SAMCO was founded on April 2006. We are involved especially in the thematic group «Monitoring and Assessment». This turns out to be a useful complement to the diffusion of our knowledge and expertise in vibration monitoring.
Within this framework, we have offered Scilab as an open platform for the integration of the modules for algorithms and methods covering the objectives of automatic modal analysis, automatic modal and statistical damage detection methods. We have also offered the COSMAD toolbox, see module 5.1 .
We are involved in the IRIS project proposal, elaborated in this framework, see module 7.2 .
