CIVIL REMARKS FALL 2011[2]
Welcome readers to our latest issue of Civil Remarks.
I begin my message to you with exciting news.Two of our faculty members, Professors
Chung C. Fu and Yunfeng Zhang, have been awarded $2.6 million to participate in
a RITA research project.The project team members also include North Carolina State
University and URS Corporation, an engineering company.According to Professors Fu
and Zhang, the project aims to develop a smart bridge condition monitoring system
termed ISHM system, which features a number of technology innovations, including
remote sensing capability, piezo paint acoustic emission sensors, wind and solar based
energy harvesting devices to power sensor network, high-speed wireless sensing ability
and advanced data analysis methods for remaining life estimation of aging bridges.
This is a much-needed project as the infrastructure within our nation begins to show the
