Speaker: Dr. Shamin Pazkad, Lehigh University
Talk Title: Mobile Sensing Platform for Structural Monitoring
The rapid revolution in sensing, computation, and communication
technology in the past twenty years has provided exciting opportunities for the integration of sensing systems to contribute in addressing one of the key questions of the engineering community in realizing resilient systems. It is hard to imagine a future for resilient civil structures and
infrastructure without embedded interactive sensory networks that can provide comprehensive feedback about the condition of structures, and produce information that can be used in operation, maintenance,rehabilitation and functionality of structures and infrastructure. One of the new sources of data is through mobile sensing. The application of these sensing mechanisms in structural systems is the focus of this presentation.
Shamim N. Pakzad, Ph.D.,
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Biography: Shamim Pakzad is an Associate Professor of Structural Engineering and Director of Graduate Studies at Lehigh University's Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.
He completed his doctorate in 2008 at the University of California Berkeley where he worked on development and large scale implementation of low power wireless sensor networks for civil structural systems. His research isfocused on sensing methods, mobile sensing,structural identification,damage detection, structural dynamics, and in a more general sense,structural health monitoring,methods and models for bigdata analysis instructural systems, and realizing resilient communities in smart andconnected cities.
