Article Posted On 1/10/2012
Research being conducted within the Pennsylvania Smart Infrastructure Incubator on pipeline structural health monitoring has recently generated three best paper awards.
Civil and Environmental Engineering doctoral student Yujie Ying has won two best paper awards for co-authored work in the last year. Ying and co-authors James Garrett, Joel Harley, Irving Oppenheim, Jun Shi, and Lucio Soibelman received an award at the 2011 International Conference on Pipelines and Trenchless Technology, in Beijing, China, in October, for their paper entitled "Damage Detection in Pipes under Changing Environmental Conditions using Embedded Piezoelectric Transducers and Pattern Recognition Techniques." Ying also received Best Data Sensing and Analysis Paper Honors at the 2011 American Society of Civil Engineers International Workshop on Computing in Civil Engineering, in Miami, FL, in June for a paper she co-authored with Harley, Garrett, Yuanwei Jin, Oppenheim, Shi, and Soibelman on applications of machine learning in pipeline monitoring.
As well, Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) doctoral student Joel Harley and his advisor University Professor of ECE Jose M.F. Moura received a best paper award at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Ultrasonics Symposium, in Orlando, FL, in October, for their paper entitled "Guided Wave Temperature Compensation with the Scale-invariant Correlation Coefficient."
