Hybrid and Virtual Experimentation for Infrastructure Lifecycle Maintenance and Natural Hazard Resilience

  • Hybrid and Virtual Experimentation for Infrastructure Lifecycle Maintenance and resilience against Natural Hazards.

    A Greek-German scientific and educational network.

Project Concept

Dynamic response of bridges and infrastructure has been widely recognized in numerous research studies with assessing the importance of Soil-Structure-Interaction (SSI). This phenomenon is very complex and whether or not is beneficial or detrimental on the dynamic response of the bridge is dependent on a series of parameters such as the intensity of ground motion, the dominant wavelengths, the angle of incidence of the seismic waves, the soil stromatography, the stiffness and damping of soil as well as the size, geometry, stiffness, slenderness and dynamic characteristics of the structure.

For such a highly multi-disciplinary engineering problem, it is clear no laboratory has the capability to simultaneously offer access to experimental and computational facilities. This inevitably limits the education of undergraduate and graduate engineering students to a single perspective of the physical problem.

The idea of  the DeGrie Lab  project is to utilize educational initiatives that would permit engineering laboratories in Germany and Greece to take advantage of current tele-observation and network capabilities in order to join their individual expertise and channel it into an integrated educational scheme.
