You are cordially invited to attend our November meeting this November 30 starting at 6pm. The event will be held at the CU Student Commons Building, University of Colorado, Denver Downtown Campus. Detailed room info and parking instructions will be sent out soon.
We look forward to meeting you there!
Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) are methods used to test a part of material or system without impairing its future usefulness. Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a relatively new paradigm (the term SHM became popular after early 2000s) that offers an automated method for tracking the health of a structure by combining damage detection algorithms with structural monitoring systems. Both terms are generally applied to nonmedical investigations of material integrity and have been extended to biomedical applications recently. The research hypothesis of LEAP, the research group established and led by Dr. Deng, is that by integrating advanced modeling, breakthrough in sensor design and new data analytics methods, the optimal NDE solutions can be found. The value of LEAP’s research is to ensure the safety of complex engineered systems and critical infrastructures, such as aircraft, nuclear reactors, bridges, pipelines and ships are important to ensure society’s industrial and economic prosperity. Recent advances in innovative NDE imaging and sensing for critical infrastructure safety will be covered and discussed in this seminar talk.
Bio. Dr. Yiming Deng is an assistant professor of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of ColoradoDenver. He obtained his Ph.D. degreeat Michigan State University in 2009and B.S. degree at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, both in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Deng has over 10 years of experience in the development of sensors and instrumentation, innovative numerical modeling for NDE and SHM. His current research focuses on novel NDE sensing and imaging systems that involves development of nondestructive and nonintrusive sensing arrays, high fidelity multi-physics modeling for understanding imaging physics, and experimental prototyping and validation. He has secured over $1.6M external research funding from USDOT,PHMSA, NIH, DOD, NSFC, ANST and private industries. Dr. Deng is a Senior Member of IEEE. He also serves as panelists for NSF, DOE, HKRGC and ad-hoc reviewers for over 20 international journals.
