Outreach in Willow Park Junior School

TRUSS participation in Willow Science Week 2015 (9th to 12th November) served the purpose of inspiring school children and motivating them to pursue an engineering career. In particular, the fellows Sofia Antonopoulou (ESR1), Rui Teixeira (ESR4), Daniel Martinez Otero (ESR12) and Siyuan Chen (ERS14), and the project manager, Loreto Manriquez, assisted in the organisation of the activity “Free-standing Structure Challenge” held in [...]

ESR receives training towards qualifying as drone pilot

Research by TRUSS fellow, Siyuan Chen, from UCD, involves the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for monitoring infrastructure safety (project ESR14). An initial step in his research requires to receive specialized training that will enable him to qualify as a pilot. For this purpose, Siyuan took a 2-day RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) Ground and Flight Training Course in [...]

Extending technological advances in road profiling

In theory, there are multitude of algorithms that could be successfully applied to structural health monitoring and damage detection if noise-free simulations were employed. In practise, these algorithms are limited by many uncertainties. To start with, the level of resolution of the measured structural response needed to capture damage is often too small compared to [...]

Posters in research exhibition at Earth Institute

TRUSS fellows attended and presented posters from their projects in the exhibition organised by the UCD Earth Institute on the Wednesday 30th September 2015, to showcase the quality and breadth of research being undertaken within the Institute. Research posters and exhibits took place in the atrium of the 4th floor in the O'Brien Center for Science (Dublin, Ireland). In the photos, Sofia Antonopoulou [...]

Article about TRUSS reaching 24,000 engineers in Ireland

The objectives of TRUSS have been published in the Website (www.engineersireland.ie), Newsletter and Journal of Engineers Ireland in the issue of the 14th July 2015. The three of them are estimated to reach 24,000 members from every discipline of engineering throughout the island. Engineers Ireland was established in 1835 as the professional body for engineers in Ireland, being [...]
