Structural monitoring represents an important part of earthquake engineering science. While seismology provides seismic and seismo-tectonic activity information, engineering seismology converts this information into useful data for earthquake engineering science. The latter takes the information and provides both general and specific codes used by structural engineers in the design process. Due to the relative randomness of earthquake phenomena, each earthquake provides additional information for a known region or brings to light new seismic faults.
