Nowadays, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are considered an essential candidate to apply structural health monitoring (SHM). An important problem in this area is sensor placement optimization. In many research works, solving this problem focuses only on the network properties and requirements such as energy consumption, network coverage, ...etc., without considering the civil engineering requirements. However, there are other research works that consider network and civil requirements while
