Dr. Sharon Wood will present “The Potential of Ubiquitous Sensing,” from 2-3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, in Room 239 Emerson Hall (Electric and Computer Engineering Building). She will compare side-by-side various schemes for rehabilitation and strengthening of existing structures, which leads to the development of field-tested recommendations for individual structural systems of specific ages. Doors open at 1:50. The lecture is open to the campus community.

Wood is the Robert L. Parker Sr. Centennial Professor in Engineering and department chair of civil, architectural and environmental engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research interests are related to improving the performance of reinforced concrete structures during earthquakes, improving the durability of structural concrete bridges under service loads, and developing sensor systems to monitor structural performance.
This distinguished lecture is presented by Missouri S&T’s student chapter of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) and the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies, in conjunction with the CE 424 Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering course. For more information, contact Dr. Lesley Sneed at 341-4553 or Dr. Genda Chen at 341-4462.
