Abstract:

With increasing complexity in the Architecture Engineering Construction (AEC) industry, more integrated project management is required. This in turn would need an integrated information management system. Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been used during the past decade to address this need. Constant information exchanges between BIM models and specialized analysis and design software has to be reliable to have flawless integrated BIM models. Proper infrastructures and frameworks are two fundamental requirements needed to achieve seamless information exchanges. This seminar is to discuss both of these requirements. First, an integrated method would be presented for standardization of information exchanges between different disciplines including structural and mechanical engineers, manufacture, and contractors during different lifecycle of the buildings. Next, a methodology for interpretation of the information from BIM model would be presented that is intended to significantly improve the integrity between BIM and engineering design/analysis models.

This seminar will entail a discussion of the ethical design and conduct of experiments. The discussion will involve the audience and address five fundamental questions. Why conduct experiments? How to design an experiment? How to conduct an experiment? What to do if you suspect unethical behavior in the laboratory? How to disseminate results? This discussion will not involve the responsible use of human or animal subjects.

Cliff Lissenden is a professor of engineering science and mechanics at Penn State. He joined the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics in 1995 and gained a joint appointment in Acoustics in 2011. He is an ASME Fellow and was founder and director of the Ben Franklin Center of Excellence in Structural Health Monitoring, which is the primary area of his research. Within structural health monitoring, his areas of specialization are guided wave ultrasonics and mechanical behavior of materials. Recent research projects have investigated adhesively bonded joints in composites, mechanically fastened multilayer metallic joints, multiaxial creep-fatigue-ratcheting behavior of superalloys at elevated temperature, and nonlinear ultrasonic characterization of microstructural evolution in superalloys.

A paper co-authored by Akhlesh Lakhtakia, Charles Godfrey Binder Professor in Engineering Science and Mechanics, is the Featured Article in the January 2015 issue of the Journal of Applied Physics.

The paper, entitled Asymmetric coupling and dispersion of surface-plasmon-polariton waves on a periodically patterned anisotropic metal film, co-authored will collaborators at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, is focused on a novel tunable grating for spectral selection of light. Figure 1 from the paper is the cover illustration of the issue.
