Day 19-21 – August 1st – 3rd

Thursday and Friday were two days of hard work to get good results for the student competitions and organize the final presentation. We divided the tasks based on each member strengths. Heekun worked on system identification for both problems using structural system identification (SSI). Alban and Chiara did system identification with the frequency domain decomposition…

Italy|Day 16-18 – July 29th – 31st

This last three days we had the last block of classes of the event. On Monday Dr. Filipe Magalhaes explained the basics about wind turbines dynamics and their vibration analysis, Dr. Hong-Nan Li talked about the use of fiber optical sensors for monitoring, Dr. Oreste Bursi talked about the use of metamaterials as wave manipulators…

Italy|Day 13-15 – July 26th-28th

On friday we had three classes. Dr. Dionisio Bernal talked about a new method for parameter estimation in model updating, this new approach is focused on obtaining the right target for the parameters and not on how to obtain the target. Dr. Zhang Chunwei talked about real application of active control such as the electromagnetic…

Italy | Day 12 – July 25th, 2019

Today we have the technical visit to the city of L’Aquila. We took a 2 hour bus to get to the city center and then we headed to the Aula Magna of the Deparment of Human Science of the University of L’Aquila. Dr. Vincenzo Gatulli gave as an introduction to the program of the day…

Italy | Day 9-11 – July 22nd-24th, 2019

The last three days we’ve had several classes. On Monday Dr. Hui Li talked about the use of Artificial Intelligence in SHM, Dr. Tomonori Nagayama described easy to use and low power consumption wireless sensors for monitoring of bridges, Dr. Yi Qing Ni explained monitoring with big data and machine learning, he showed us some…

Italy | Days 6-8 – July 19th and 21st, 2019

The ANCRiSST workshop also took place at the Faculty of Industrial and Civil Engineering. At the beginning we had three keynote lectures, the first one was about bridge inspection with Dr. Hyung-Jo Jung, the second about metamaterials with Dr. Muamer Kadic, and the last one about base isolation systems with Dr. Antonello De Luca. The…

Italy | Day 5 – July 18th, 2019

Another day full of activities! We had four classes today. Dr. Yozo Fujino talked about bridge vibration and how to control it. Dr. Hoon Sohn explained smart sensing technologies applied to structural health monitoring (SHM) and talked about the importance of research of damage detection withouth baseline data. Dr. Keneth Loh talked about the Engineering…

Italy | Day 4 – July 17th, 2019

Today we begun with a class about Bayesian logic and how it is applied in Smart Structural Elements. Dr. Daniele Zonta explained probabilistic logic, Bayes’ rule and how this principles can be used to do damage detection when an element is built with sensors directly from the beginning. The other two classes were taught by…

Italy | Day 3 – July 16th, 2019

Today we had three classes. The first one was taught by Dr. Yang Wang and he talked about structural dynamics and model updating. It was very interesting to learn about non-proportional damping because proportional damping does not always hold in practice. We also learned how to use an open-source MATLAB package for structural model updating…

Italy | Day 2 – July 15th, 2019

The official first day of the event! You could notice the excitement during breakfast. All our classes will be at the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering of Sapienza, University of Rome. It is located far from the main campus but it is right beside the Colosseum! It is a 17 minute walk from the…
