This paper presents a partial evaluation of a fully decentralized approach to detect, localize and determine the extent of damage on civil structures in environments that range from offshore oil and gas industry to wind farms. The evaluation presented in this paper is a first step towards the conception of a fully decentralized algorithm for structural health monitoring, whose key idea is to fully distribute the procedure of monitoring a structure among the nodes in a wireless sensor network.
