Structural Engineering Research

About Structural Engineering Research @ CEE

At PSU,  we are doing exciting research in bridge engineering, sensing and monitoring, earthquake engineering and sustainable structures.  CEE faculty have organized their research around the infrastructure Testing and Applied Research (iSTAR) Laboratory faculty and students focus on the effects of extreme loads on our infrastructure, the utilization of innovative materials, and the non-destructive testing and monitoring of structural system before, during, and after a disaster.

Faculty contact information is listed in the Faculty & Staff Directory.

Peter Dusicka Associate Professor Earthquake resistance and retrofit of bridges, seismic assessment of high voltage infrastructure, strength assessment of green building systems, design strategies for rapid occupancy following extreme events
Thomas Schumacher Associate Professor Novel sensing methodologies for non-destructive testing (NDT) and structural health monitoring (SHM) of civil infrastructure, behavior and durability of concrete structures, structures subject to extreme events, sustainability, and data analysis and signal processing
Franz Rad Professor Earthquake vulnerability of buildings in urban areas and seismic retrofit
