State-of-the-Field: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) Application to Bridge Projects: Experience from Louisiana

April 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

In the State-of-the-Field event series, C2SMART leverages its consortium of researchers and experts to share a vision of the future of mobility and transportation systems. They’ll share advances, opportunities, predictions, research bottlenecks, and what perspectives and skills are needed from researchers and the workforce of tomorrow towards tackling one area of today’s most pressing problems.

Professor Ayman M. Okeil, LSU will share his experience applying structural health monitoring (SHM) methods to three Louisiana projects, employed to assist the Louisiana DOTD in updating their standard continuity detail between simply supported prestressed concrete girders, and to address load rating of cast-in-place (CIP) reinforced concrete (RC) box culverts with low fill heights. He’ll share the impact this applied research made on the Louisiana Bridge Design and Evaluation Manual, and recommendations for future load ratings. Professor Okeil will also share his efforts to develop the transportation workforce of tomorrow by introducing SHM to civil engineering curriculum, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.


Dr. Ayman M. Okeil is Roy P. Daniels Professor of Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Louisiana State University. Dr. Okeil’s experience in the field of bridge engineering includes strengthening of concrete girders using composite materials, behavior of box girder bridges, structural health monitoring and reliability calibration of LRFD codes. Dr. Okeil is a voting member / associate member in several national committees (ACI 440 and 444, TRB AKB10 AND AKB30, ASCE-ACI 343) and serves as Associate Editor for the ASCE J. of Composites for Construction. He is the recipient of several awards in recognition of his teaching and research contributions including “Michael R. Mangham Memorial Undergraduate Teaching Award” from LSU Tiger Athletic Foundation, the “Outstanding Teaching Award” at NCSU, the “Outstanding Achievement Award” at LSU (twice), and the “Educator of the Year Award” from the Baton Rouge Branch of ASCE (twice). He has also consulted on various projects related to both buildings and bridges. His PhD dissertation investigated seismic design of secondary systems in nuclear power plants.
