ceephd feb 2024On 1 February from 9:30 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. in the main hall of the Engineering Campus of the University of Perugia and on-line on the Microsoft Teams Platform, the Fifth "CEE_PhD Day" of the DICA International and Industrial Doctorate in "Civil and Environmental Engineering" will be held.

During the day, the PhD students of the XXXVI and XXXIX Cycles will present before the International Faculty Board their research activities carried out at UNIPG in collaboration with numerous international and industrial partners. The schedule of the day with the titles of the speeches is available at the following [link].

prinOn Wednesday, January 24th, at 9:00 AM, the final workshop of the PRIN 2017 Project "DETECT-AGING - Degradation Effects on Structural Safety of Cultural Heritage Constructions through Simulation and Health Monitoring" will take place at the Aula Magna of the Engineering Campus in Perugia (and online via the MS Teams platform).

The project involved the participation of the Universities of Naples "Federico II" (lead institution), Bologna, Genoa, and Perugia.

The poster with the link for remote connection is available [here]. All interested parties are welcome, either in person or online.

On October 12th 2023 at 11:00 a.m. in Aula Magna, Engineering Campus of the University of Perugia, two worldwide acknowledged researchers will give a seminar within the Course “International Doctoral Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering”.

Professor Simon Laflamme from the Iowa State University (USA), whose research fields mainly cover the areas of smart structures and systems, structural control and structural health monitoring, will give a seminar entitled “Fast Physics-lnformed Machine Learning for High-Rate Structural Health Monitoring”.

The seminar “An lntroduction to Population-Based SHM: When is a Bridge Not an Aeroplane?” given by Professor Keith Worden from the University of Sheffield (UK) will follow. Keith Worden’ research is mainly concerned with applications of advanced signal processing and machine learning methods to structural dynamics, particularly in structural health monitoring and non-linear dynamics.

Flyers of the seminars with a short bio of the speakers and the link to attend the event online are enclosed.

seminario prof. sadhucorso prof. sadhuThe Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will have the pleasure of hosting prof. Ayan Sadhu who will deliver a course on Structural Health Monitoring based on Data Science techniques (13-27 September) at the same time as the International Doctoral Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering. The professor will also hold a seminar on September 14th on the topic of Artificial Intelligence-enabled Smart Structural Health Monitoring and Maintenance of Civil Infrastructures.

The professor Sadhu is an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Western University, Canada, with a research focus on facility monitoring (SHM), infrastructure management, next-generation measurement systems and artificial intelligence. He is the director of the Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) lab at Western University. He is the author of over 100 scientific articles with almost 1750 citations according to the Google Scholar source. He has received research funding totaling nearly $3.2 million from various government and industry agencies. He received the Early Researcher Award (ERA) and a five-year research grant from the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities for his research on SHM and bridge rehabilitation using next-generation sensors. He was the winner of the Junior Researcher Award from the Faculty of Engineering at Western University. His research was also funded by NSERC, Natural Resources Canada, Mitacs and various industry partners such as North American Palladium, WSP Canada, Canada Masonry Design Center and Conservation Authority. He recently received a CFI-JELF grant from the federal government to establish an SHM laboratory. His algorithms have been successfully implemented for condition assessment of large-scale infrastructure elements such as highway and pedestrian bridges, critical airport facilities, buildings, mining facilities, dams and underground structures around the world.
