Smart Structural Monitoring

Smart Structural Monitoring

What if cities could monitor the structural health of their bridges, tall buildings, and utility infrastructure — as easily as they monitor rush-hour traffic and building security? Claudia Marin and her team have devised an AI-based system to do just that.

Nominations Now Open for 2023 Dataset Awards — The DesignSafe Dataset Awards recognize outstanding datasets published in the Data Depot data repository. Multiple Dataset Awards are recognized annually and the selection committee considers datasets across the different types of data models (e.g., experimental, simulation, hybrid simulation, field research, other).

When Extreme Events Strike — A snapshot of work underway by NHERI teams during Hurricane Ian's landfall. When natural hazards strike, researchers around the NHERI network spring into action — eager to do what they do best: document extreme events and their damage with imagery and data — in hopes of preventing similar destruction in the future.
