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 of Multifunctional Materials and the way these can be used to design effective SHM systems because they have more than one engineering function, and Dr. Jerome Lynch talked about wireless technology  for SHM.

Lunch break was also fun with a sandwich from Lo Spaccio and a walk in the park of Colle Oppio next to the Colosseum.

Today is also the beginning of the international workshop ANCRiSST 2019, we had a welcome cocktail and a visit to the Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli. We had a guided tour of the Basilica which is located next to the Faculty and it is home to Michelangelo's statue of Moses and the St. Peter's chains.
