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.
The objective of this project is to develop efficient bridge management systems by collecting objective data through a continuous structural health monitoring (SHM) system for estimating the infrastructure remaining service life by means of performance prediction models.
