State-of-the-Field: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) Application to Bridge Projects: Experience from Louisiana
April 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In the State-of-the-Field event series, C2SMART leverages its consortium of researchers and experts to share a vision of the future of mobility and transportation systems. They’ll share advances, opportunities, predictions, research bottlenecks, and what perspectives and skills are needed from researchers and the workforce of tomorrow towards tackling one area of today’s most pressing problems.
Professor Ayman M. Okeil, LSU will share his experience applying structural health monitoring (SHM) methods to three Louisiana projects, employed to assist the Louisiana DOTD in updating their standard continuity detail between simply supported prestressed concrete girders, and to address load rating of cast-in-place (CIP) reinforced concrete (RC) box culverts with low fill heights. He’ll share the impact this applied research made on the Louisiana Bridge Design and Evaluation Manual, and recommendations for future load ratings. Professor Okeil will also share his efforts to develop the transportation workforce of tomorrow by introducing SHM to civil engineering curriculum, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
