Article Posted On 10/24/2014

Please join us Friday, November 7 from noon to 1 PM for a webinar presentation by Matineh Eybpoosh entitled ďA Sparse Discriminant Approach for Robust Nondestructive Evaluation of Pipelines Using Guided-waves.Ē You may join us in person in 1216 Hamburg Hall or use the dial in information below. Please note that the audio portion of the webinar can be accessed through Chorus Call and the slides through WebEx.

In spite of recent advances in sensing and data analysis techniques very small percentage of the pipeline incidents are identified by data acquisition and testing systems. In this research, we address some of the challenges for real-world application of nondestructive evaluation (NDE) systems for pipeline inspection. We use statistical, pattern recognition and signal processing techniques to develop methods that train a computer to discriminate the changes caused by damage from the irrelevant effects caused by ambient conditions. As a result, the application of the developed data-driven methods can be extended to a wide range of real-world conditions.

Matineh Eybpoosh is a PhD candidate at Civil and Environmental Engineering Department of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Her research interests include application of sensing technologies, and data analysis techniques for monitoring, understanding and predicting the behavior of physical environments, including infrastructures and building systems. In her PhD, she is working on developing methods for robust and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of the integrity of pipelines. Matineh received a masterís degree from the same program at CMU. Before CMU, she completed her first masterís degree in the Construction Engineering and Management Program at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. She received her B.A. in Civil Engineering at Tabriz University, Iran.
