Ph.D. student Brandon J. Perry was awarded third place in an American Society of Civil Engineers student paper competition in the areas of structural health monitoring, system identification, smart materials and structures, and structural control. Perry uses drones to take 3D displacement measurements of structures. He presented his work in June at the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.
“I was honored to be given the opportunity to present my work and am grateful for the support from CSU,” Perry said.
Perry presented the paper, “Measurements of the 3-Component (3C) Dynamic Displacements of Full-Scale Structures Using an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS),” during the Structural Health Monitoring and Control Committee gathering. Perry’s advisor, Assistant Professor Yanlin Guo, and Associate Professor Rebecca Atadero are co-authors.
