Title: Development of methods for structural health monitoring and damage identification

Applicant: Riga Technical University, Institute of Materials and Structures

Project duration: 1st July – 15th December

Cooperation partner: Dresden University of Technology, Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology

The project aims to improve and expand collaboration between the scientists of the Riga Technical University Institute of Materials and Structures and the Dresden University of Technology Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology in the field of structural health monitoring and damage identification, and to promote sustainable exchange of students and young scientists, as well as technology and knowledge transfer between the participating countries. Within the project Latvian and German scientists will share their experience and knowledge of methods and solutions for structural health monitoring and damage identification and their application for various engineering structures.

Structural health monitoring and damage detection in civil, transport and aerospace engineering constructions has become one of the most important keys in maintaining the integrity and safety of a structure. Thus, developed solutions and expertise of Institute of Materials and Structures and Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology researchers in this area can be useful not only for the involved project partners, but also for students and professionals from various disciplines in both countries. One of the project activities is a guest lecture of Dr. Sandris Ručevskis in Germany on structural health monitoring and damage identification solutions developed at Institute of Materials and Structures and their application areas. During the visit it is planned also to organize a seminar and discussions with students and professionals. The guest lecture is planned in August and December 2012 at the Dresden University of Technology Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology. Similarly, it is planned to organize a guest lecture and a seminar in Latvia in October 2012 at the Riga Technical University Civil engineering faculty of German scientists. Within this activity it is planned to prepare informative materials about the project and provide an opportunity for other institutions to get acquainted with scientific research carried out at Institute of Materials and Structures and opportunities for cooperation.

Within the project also a joint scientific research work will be carried out in both participating countries. These studies will form the basis for new developments and solutions in the field of structural health monitoring.
