The world is undergoing major technological changes and this era is already considered the fourth industrial revolution. These new technologies have profound implications for the way we live, work, and interact with each other. For this reason, the 3rd Conference on Testing and Experimentation in Civil Engineering (TEST&E 2022), was focused on the way Smart Technologies affect the development of Civil Engineering in all its different areas. Those technologies assume an increasingly predominant role in all Civil Engineering activities, in the planning and design phases, construction, maintenance and management of the built environment. The permanent evolution of testing and experimentation in Civil Engineering will decisively contribute to integrating these new technologies.The TEST&E 2022 was organized by the NOVA School of Science & Technology (FCT NOVA), together with the Association of Accredited Laboratories of Portugal (RELACRE) and the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), and it took place at the Campus of Caparica of FCT NOVA, from 21st – 23rd June 2022. This conference aimed to provide a broad forum for the dissemination and sharing of knowledge and experiences among its participants in the areas of research and teaching, industry, and services, under the main theme of Smart Technologies. This book presents the conference proceedings, with 98 extended abstracts by 324 authors, and is organized according to the following topics:
1. Destructive and non-destructive testing
2. Biomaterials, nanomaterials and new material
3. Modeling (calibration, simulation) and validation of models
4. New sensors and technologies (photogrammetry, laser scanning, drones, wireless)
5. Inspection, monitoring and automatic damage identification
6. 3D modeling, 3D printing and artificial intelligence applications
The editors express their greatest gratitude: to the authors, for their confidence in the dissemination of their work in this congress; to the Scientific Committee, for the contribution given to the technical and scientific quality of the articles; to the Local Organizing Committee and the Executive Committee, for guaranteeing the successful completion of the congress. A general acknowledgement is addressed to all those who directly or indirectly contributed to the excellence of the quality of this congress.
