Courses:


CE 59700 Image-based Sensing


This graduate course is an introduction to vision-based sensing for management and condition assessment of civil infrastructure systems. Some of the topics covered in this course include basic concepts in digital image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision that are applicable for segmentation, clustering, 3D reconstruction of civil infrastructure elements, strain and displacement measurement, defect detection and structural health monitoring.



CE 37100 Structural Analysis I


This undergraduate course provides students with the concepts that are used to determine the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Topics to be covered include: stress resultants (reactions, axial forces, shear forces, and bending moments) for beams and framed structures; deflections of beams and frames by geometric methods (moment-area theorems and applications; conjugate beam analogy); analysis of statically indeterminate beams and frames by classical stiffness methods, slope deflection and moment distribution; influence functions and their applications.



CE 29700 Basic Mechanics I: Statics


This undergraduate course provides students with the necessary tools to analyze and understand the conditions of equilibrium. Topics to be covered include: statics of particles; rigid bodies: equivalent systems of forces and equilibrium; centroids and centers of gravity; static analysis of trusses, frames, and machines; friction; area moments of inertia.

EPCS 10100 Smart Cities


EPICS is a service-learning design program in which teams of students partner with local and global community organizations to address human, community, and environmental needs. In this course, engineering undergraduate students build an inexpensive hardware-software package system to be mounted on several vehicles for autonomous pothole detection, quantification and localization in West Lafayette, IN.

Outreach:


East Tipp Middle School Visit


Middle school students explored a variety of different sensors and their applications in robotics.





Data-Driven Model/Damage Identification Workshop


A workshop was co-organized at Bowen Laboratory at Purdue University on June 7-8, 2015 to bring together an interdisciplinary group of experts in the area of data-driven modeling methods, especially those that focus on nonlinear system/model identification and damage detection to share experiences and foster opportunities.
