Dr. Massimmo Ruzzene, professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, will present two lectures as part of the “Distinguished Lecture Series” organized by the System and Process Assessment Research (SPAR) Laboratory in the civil, architectural and environmental engineering department at Missouri S&T. The lectures are free and open to the campus community.
The technical lecture, titled “Guided Acoustic Wavefield Imaging for Damage Detection, Structural Characterization and Transducer Design,” will be held 9:45-10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, in Room 107 Fulton Hall. This presentation will provide an overview of techniques developed for the analysis of guided wavefields and their application for damage detection, structural characterization, and for the design of novel transducers for structural health monitoring.
A second NSF lecture will be held 3:15-4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, in Room 315 Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall. This lecture is titled “Dynamics, Control and Systems Diagnostics Program Overview,” and will provide a quick overview of the Dynamics, Control and Systems Diagnostics Program, its goals, its funding levels and its priorities. In addition, the presentation will provide advice and general suggestions regarding proposal writing and submission, and general interactions between NSF and the scientific community.
