Award from Science Foundation Ireland won by Professor OBrien

Prof Eugene OBrien has just won an award from Science Foundation Ireland on the topic of Camera Based Bridge Safety Monitoring. The award is worth €400,000 to UCD and is part of SFI’s US/Ireland programme. It is in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Central Florida. Many bridges, in European and the United States, have deteriorated and lost some load carrying capacity over their life cycles. However, they may still be safe, given their conservative designs. A great deal of money can be saved by ...

3D printing facilities in Civil Engineering, Newstead

Prof. Debra F. Laefer has brought 3D printing to Ireland by launching the country’s first, full-service, commercial-level 3D printing hub, U3D. Housed at the University College Dublin where she teaches in the School of Civil Engineering, U3D, offers scan to print services, 3D printing classes, and all major 3D printing technologies including metal printing. The endeavor is an outgrowth of her European Research Council (ERC) funded research that developed mechanisms to auto-convert remote sensing technology such as laser...
