Each participant will be provided a data set and will learn how to perform damage assessment using Matlab. Please make sure that you bring a laptop with Matlab installed.<br /> <br /> If you wish to attend please register with Clement Barthes at: <a href=""></a>.<br /> <br /> Consider attending the accompanying seminar: <a href="">Structural Health Monitoring of Composite Structures: Application to Aeronautic Nacelles</a> on Friday, May 19, 11am-noon, 502 Davis Hall. Multimodal Transportation Operations: Evaluation Methods and Performance Measures, May 23-Jun 8 This new online training course provides the fundamentals required to understand, perform, and interpret the results from multimodal operational analysis and performance evaluations. Several of the most commonly used evaluation and analysis methods are presented with real-world examples. The course focuses on how to develop an appropriate set of performance measures to reliably compute the gains in performance to the transportation system (and/or subsystems) attributable to a project, policy, or program of interest. It also covers the data sources and data reliability, analytic (evaluation) methods and their strengths and limitations, and the overall reliability of the analytical results.
