Dr. Ryan Kent Giles’ research focuses on using sensor technology to continuously monitor the condition and safety of bridges and other civil infrastructure. Structural Health Monitoring or SHM, as this process is generally called, aims to supplement current bridge inspection practices providing a more objective approach in assessing bridge health which translates into greater public safety. Utilizing sensor technology not only helps allocate limited resources in a more effective manner, but it also aids in the sustainability of the nation’s infrastructure.
