Course Description

The course addresses in-depth theoretical fundamentals which help to resolve problems and challenges an engineer has to tackle when assessing and monitoring civil infrastructure. You will engage with advances in, and applications of, sensing technologies and data management tools and you will develop a clear understanding of the fundamentals of structural identification.

You will develop skills in applying information technology to generate numerical replicas of physical structures which are employed to assess their performance. You will also engage with algorithmic signal processing approaches which are used to interpret measurements obtained from monitoring projects.

This course includes:

  • human-structure interactions and environmental effects on civil infrastructure;
  • sensing systems for structural health monitoring;
  • data management, including acquisition, transmission and storage;
  • structural identification including generation and evaluation of physics-based and non-physics based (data-driven) models;
  • resilient structures, their design, risk mitigation and implementation strategies;
  • case studies; and
  • smart civil infrastructure.
