Distributed Strain Sensing of a Solar PV single-axis tracking system located at the Nextracker Development Center 

This project seeks to demonstrate the ability of fiber optic sensing (FOS) technology to produce meaningful data that characterize single-axis tracking systems with regard to dynamic wind loading.  This project will explore the ability of FOS technology to capture frequency modes,… Read More »Distributed Strain Sensing of a Solar PV single-axis tracking system located at the Nextracker Development Center 

Enhanced Post-Earthquake Structural Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Moment Frames through Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing

Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR), a specialized branch of Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS), is emerging as a transformative approach in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures. This research explores OFDR’s potential in post-earthquake damage assessment, contrasting its… Read More »Enhanced Post-Earthquake Structural Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Moment Frames through Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing
