What is it about?
This study presents a rapid screening method for health monitoring of building structures based on earthquake records. Compared with conventional damage detection techniques, the rapid screening system with few sensors is more attractive and cost-effective in assessing the global behaviors of a building structure.

Why is it important?
Compared with the conventional SHM method, a rapid screening method with few sensors and little computational effort is more attractive and cost-effective in assessing the global behavior of a structural system. Although it is not possible to determine the damage location relying on the global system parameters, however, it can be used for rapid condition screening to provide nearly real-time reliable information on the integrity of a building. Such a rapid screening method is suitable for wide application to residential and public buildings for quick action after earthquake to save human lives.
