Dr. Haran receives NASA EPSCoR award
Dr. Shivan Haran, Mechanical Engineering , has received a NASA EPSCoR RDr. Shivan Haranesearch Infrastructure Development Planning and Preparatory (RID P&P) award for his project, "Structure Health Monitoring for Space Structures by Using Thin-film Piezoelectric Networks." He will work jointly with Dr. Guoliang Huang, principal investigator, Systems Engineering, UALR. The project involves a new structural health monitoring technique using MEMs-based piezoelectric active sensors to provide a comprehensive study of the dynamic behavior of composite plate structures, aiding in the development of a new and reliable technique for online self-monitoring systems for large space structures that are integrated with thin-film piezoelectric sensor systems. Such research addresses the need for safe and reliable advanced space exploration vehicle and propulsion systems that are key to NASA's human and space technology (HR&T) objectives of the Space Exploration Initiative.
