Structural Health Monitoring of D&D Facility to Identify Cracks and Structural Defects for Surveillance and Maintenance Structural health monitoring is imperative to the ongoing surveillance and maintenance (S&M) across the DOE complex. As these facilities await decommissioning, there is a need to understand the structural health of these structures. Many of these facilities were built over 50 years ago and, in some cases, these facilities have gone beyond operational life…

Happy Earth Day 2020!!!

Happy Earth Day 2020!!!

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this event! This year’s theme is Climate Action. As an academic and research organization which supports the clean-up and preservation of our environment FIU’s Applied Research Center annually participates in events such as the annual Miami-Dade County’s Baynanza beach clean-up, involving our staff, students and families. With social distancing in place, however, many Earth Day activities have gone digital. Therefore FIU ARC would like to…
