This paper describes an approach to selecting appropriate causal models for engineering diagnosis. We have chosen a hybrid approach which is a combination of model composition and model reuse. Model composition permits reasoning with multiple models that contain explicit assumptions. Difficulties related to intractability during model composition are reduced by model reuse. We are currently validating and testing the system on full-scale civil engineering structures.
