The research team works in modeling and assessment of structural degradation mechanisms for a diverse set of systems including nuclear structures, buildings, bridges, and aircraft. We also work in the development of new and sustainable materials and systems including geopolymers and civil applications of shape memory alloys.
Our group is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Electric Power Research Institute, NASA, the South Carolina Department of Transportation, and others:
“Online Monitoring System for Concrete Structures affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction”, DOE NEUP.
“Progressive Damage Analysis, TC1 2C18, Advanced Composites Consortium”, NASA.
“Distributed Condition Prognostics System for Navy Shipboard Machinery”, Navy Surface Warfare Center/DOD.
“Assessment of Structural Degradation for Bridges and Culverts”, SCDOT.
“Improved Resiliency of Transportation Networks through Connected Mobility”, USDOT Center for Connected Multimodal Mobility (funded through C2M2).
“Stress Wave Propagation Simulation for Stress Corrosion Cracking Applied to Austenitic Stainless Steel Dry Cask Storage Systems”, EPRI.
