The aim of the PITA project is to develop a novel integrated framework using structural health monitoring and reliability technologies for improved bridge management under uncertainty. Through the use of new technologies and the employment of structural health monitoring and reliability approaches, the project is expected to have significant impact on bridge lifetime management practices.
This project is focused on the development of an integrated life-cycle framework for ship reliability assessment, redundancy estimation, damage detection, and optimum inspection planning.
This project is developing a framework for the life-cycle management and optimization of aerospace and defense special materials and components. The research is conducted in the A140 computational laboratory at the ATLSS Engineering Research Center under the support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
This project focuses on integrating the structural health monitoring (SHM) information and the system performance of naval ships in a comprehensive framework that supports the real-time or near real-time decision making process.
This project aims to develop integrated maintenance-monitoring-management systems for highway bridge infrastructure at both project-level and network-level, based on simulated and monitored time-dependent bridge health as well as reliability and life-cycle cost analyses.
