SDII participates in Engineering Week

SDII performed demonstrations about fall detection project and liquefaction using a small scale shake table. Dr. Chunyang Liu joined SDII for the liquefaction demonstration. In the picture from left to right Diego Arocha, Juan Caicedo, Chunyang Liu and Benjamin Davis.

Ramin Madarshahian presents paper at IMAC

Ramin Madarshahian presented the paper "Using P-box and PiFE to express uncertainty in model updating" co-authored by Dr. Caicedo and Dr. Zarate. This paper proposes the use of probaiblity bounds with the Pseudo-inverse Finite Element (PiFE) method for structural model updating.

Dr. Caicedo participates in graduate seminar at Duke University

Dr. Caicedo was invited to give a talk at the graduate student seminar at Duke University on October 17, 2012. The title of his talk was "The Model Updating Cognitive System Framework" and described SDII efforts in the development of a framework for model updating that tries to couple the computational power of machines with the analytical power of humans.
