School of Materials Seminar entitled "Structural Health Monitoring at Monash"
|Dates:||19 December 2017|
|Times:||14:00 - 15:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Department of Materials|
|Speaker:||Professor Wing Kong Chiu|
Structural health monitoring (SHM) is one of Prof. Chiu’s research foci. He has received research support to conduct these works on aircraft structures, civil structures and land vehicles.
Recently he collaborated with an orthopaedic surgeon on the potential of extending the SHM principles for the healing assessment of fractured bone. In this presentation, Chiu will introduce
the genesis of this project and where it has taken us.
Chiu is a member of academic staff at the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Monash University. Chiu receives research funding in structural health monitoring research
from Australian Government, industries and overseas authorities. His work spans across aerospace (aircraft structures), civil (pipelines and large membrane floating covers), rail (integrity
assessment of tracks) and mechanical (rotating equipment) engineering. Chiu recently initiated a new research direction in extending his knowledge to work to the medical area. He has
developed a fruitful collaboration with researchers and surgeons from The National Trauma Research Institute. Apart from securing research funding, they have jointly filed two patents.
Chiu has also been instrumental in introducing SHM to orthopaedics. He is collaborating with Dr M. Russ and Professor Fitzgerald on this project and they have received support from the
US Office of Naval Research.
