R.A. Smith National structural engineer Joe Diekfuss, Ph.D., P.E., co-authored three articles recently published in the Journal of Structural Engineering, an American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) scholarly periodical. Each of the three articles detail recently completed research on reliability-based fatigue inspection and evaluation of sign support structures. The technical papers were co-authored by Dr. Christopher Foley, Marquette University Professor and Chair, Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering.

“It is a great feeling to know the work I did at Marquette University will be disseminated via the Journal of Structural Engineering for the engineering community to use,” Diekfuss said of the rigorous review process.

The Case for Investing in Better Structural Monitoring

by Scott Ginal 19. February 2014 04:39

Until recent years, our nation’s structures were visually inspected and manually tested to detect failure. Technology in measuring devices is advancing and now engineers are able collect data that can be used to assess a structure’s health in real time. Read further to explore the case for investing in better structural monitoring.
