Chair of Structural Mechanics joins team

The Assistant Professorship of Structural Mechanics, at the Institute of Structural Engineering (IBK), ETH Zurich, led by Prof. Eleni Chatzi, has joined the team, to design a structural health monitoring system for the roof of HiLo. Fibre-optic sensors, placed at key locations within the thin shell roof, will allow us to gather information on temperature, deformations and strains, during the unit’s lifetime. These readings can be used to validate our numerical models and verify the roof’s structural and energy performance.
