Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) helps to estimate the health of the structures to detect the damage. A continuous monitoring is provided through wireless sensor Network (WSN). As an enabling technology, WSN along with SHM helps to achieve a low cost estimate. The damage detection is achieved through 2 phases (i) Training phase (ii) Operational phase. The training phase collects the data for the formation of data points. The Data point now forms the boundary region to detect the damaged areas. The operational phase contains three sub processes. They are data collection, transmission and damage evaluation. The clusters are formed and cluster head passes the details to detect the damage. The simulation shows the efficiency of these processes.
