Flooding and Public Transportation

The NYU Rudin Center for Transportation presents a virtual panel discussion about mitigating climate change impacts, keeping transit riders safe and reassured, and activating alternative modes.

State of the Field: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) towards Infrastructure Resiliency

Virtual 6 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, NY, United States

What does the best of transportation engineering research have to say about maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement of critical infrastructure? Structural Health Monitoring provides critical insight into answering these questions using new technologies that are changing the ways we tackle maintenance and rehabilitation of structures.

State-of-the-Field: Application of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Sensors For Infrastructure Assessment and Resiliency

Virtual 6 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) provides an efficient way to estimate the static weight of a vehicle by measuring the dynamic tire force of a moving vehicle. Recently, emphasis has been placed on coupling these two complementary technologies in infrastructure evaluation and resiliency: SHM provides structural response or resistance while WIM provides actual loading conditions and future load prediction that enables determination of infrastructure capacity, resulting in the operating service loads needed for developing statistical live load models for use at the strength and service limit states.
