Advancing Infrastructure Performance Modeling
Date and Time: 3:30PM 15 December 2017 (Friday)
Venue: Room 617, Civil Engineering Building, Beijing Jiao Tong University.
Speaker: Dr. Zheng Yi Wu, Bentley Fellow, Bentley Systems, Incorporated.
Abstract: With the aging infrastructure in the developed countries and the massive construction of new infrastructure in the developing countries, infrastructure performance is of great concerns on nations’ sustainability. Monitoring and modeling the performance of various infrastructure systems are critical but challenging tasks. This seminar will present an overview of Bentley’s research within the context of infrastructure asset performance modeling, elaborate on our endeavor in developing computational intelligent methods for facilitating monitoring/field testing, extracting information from large datasets, inverse modeling for adequately representing an infrastructure system, and also the use of the calibrated model for performance evaluation and anomaly identification. The needs and opportunities will also be discussed for future innovative research in infrastructure performance modeling. In particular, the seminar will cover the topics including smart monitoring, intelligent data analytics and advanced modeling for building, bridges and water systems, advanced structural health monitoring and modeling by remote vision sensor, and big 3D data and classification for semantic 3D modeling.
