Paper about TRUSS project in DAMAS 2017

The coordinator, Dr. Arturo Gonzalez, presented the TRUSS paper entitled "Developments in damage assessment by Marie Skłodowska-Curie TRUSS ITN project" at the 12th International Conference on Damage Assessment of Structures (DAMAS 2017). DAMAS 2017 took place in the International Conference Center at Kitakyushu (Japan) from 10th to 12th July. The event brought together the expertise of  about 150 scientists [...]

Validating a bridge safety model with long records of field data

ESRs in TRUSS are working on novel and advanced theoretical models that will reduce uncertainty in structural safety. However, these models need to be throughly tested on the field before they come standard in engineering practise. When the structures to be tested have the large scale of a bridge and the algorithm needs availability of long data records, [...]

Special Session on TRUSS in Portoroz (ESREL 2017)

TRUSS researchers participated at the Symposium titled “TRUSS, A Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network in Structural Safety”, held as part of the 27th edition of the ESREL (European Safety and Reliability) conference series in Portoroz (Slovenia) from 18th to 22nd June 2017. TRUSS was featured in Room Europa D of Grand Hotel Bernardin on Tuesday from [...]

Meeting requirements for a doctoral degree

All TRUSS ESRs are enrolled in a PhD programme at one of the academic beneficiaries. Therefore, in addition to the research, training and dissemination activities related to TRUSS, they must meet a number of requirements before submitting their PhD thesis for assessment. The pictures in this post show Barbara Heitner (ESR8), Farhad Huseynov (ESR7), Alberto Gonzalez (ESR3),  Daniel [...]

Open day activity of the UPC’s doctoral school

The open day at the doctoral school in UPC is an activity mainly attended by masters students where Antonio Barrias (ESR11) and JJ Moughty (ESR10) talked about their PhD program experience. The aim is to clarify the pros and cons of a PhD, and entice possible students who would like to follow this path after the [...]

A state of the art review of modal-based damage detection in bridges: development, challenges, and solutions

"A State of the Art Review of Modal-Based Damage Detection in Bridges: Development, Challenges, and Solutions" is a paper published by JJ Moughty (ESR10) and his supervisor Joan Ramon Casas, in Applied Sciences on the 13th May 2017. This article was part of the Special Issue on "Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of Civil Structures" edited by Prof. Dr. Gangbing [...]

TRUSS at Engineering Research Showcase in Nottingham

The University of Nottingham's 2017 annual Engineering Research Showcase was held on Thursday 4 May in room A09 of the Engineering and Science Learning Centre (ESLC). A full day of events, starting from 10am, was attended by about 150 people, mostly students and staff at the Faculty of Engineering. It consisted of posters, workshops and a keynote [...]

Analysis of load test on composite I-girder bridge

On 26th April 2017, the paper titled "Analysis of load test on composite I-girder bridge" by Farhad Huseynov (ESR7), his supervisors James Brownjohn and Eugene OBrien, and David Hester, came available in the website of Journal of Civil Structural Health Monitoring. Abstract: This paper showcases the importance of field testing in efforts to deal with the deteriorating infrastructure. It shows [...]
