SDII participates in E-week

The Structural Dynamics and Intelligent Infrastructure lab participated in the College of Engineering and Computer's E-week open house.  Ramin, Benjamin, Phillip and Albert created a game that required participants to retrieve an object from a classroom without being detected.  Floor vibrations were monitored as participants walked through the room.  Participants were "detected" if the floor acceleration went above a specific threshold.   This game was intended to show participants how floor vibrations can be used to monitor human activity, including fall detection.

Welcome Yohanna

Yohanna Mejia has joined the research group as a Ph.D. student.  Yohanna will be work on model updating and helping develop cyber-infrastructure for the EPSCoR project in cooperation with Clemson University.

Dr. Caicedo invited for talk at the Pontificia Universidad Bolivariana in Bucaramanga

Dr. Caicedo was invited to give a talk at the Pontificia Universidad Bolivariana in Bucaramanga (Colombia) as part of the 20 years of the department.  During his visit Dr. Caicedo had a chance to visit Dr. Ospina and tour the laboratory facilities.  Dr. Caicedo's talk focused in the use of probability in model updating.

Ramin Madarshahian and Albert Ortiz present papers at IMAC

Ramin Madarshahian and Albert Ortiz presented two papers at the XXXII IMAC conference in Orlando Florida.  Ramin's paper discussed a study showing the important factors when trying to identify falls using structural vibrations.  Albert's paper focused on the use of PID controller to mimic human-structure interaction.
