Northeastern’s Jerome Hajjar and colleagues are developing a sophisticated system that uses autonomous small flying robots coupled with 3-D imaging and state-of-the art planning, modeling, and analysis to inspect structures from bridges to buildings and automatically identify problems, track their progress, and assess the need for follow-up.
Jerry Hajjar, professor and chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is helping to design an autonomous low-flying vehicle capable of understanding and predicting structural damage in unsafe and remote locations following disaster events and for longterm maintenance.
Andrew Myers, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, recently received a $325,000 NSF grant to model the vulnerabilities of wind turbines during hurricanes.
The College of Engineering is hosting the National Science Foundation’s annual Engineering Research and Innovation Conference, which will focus on transforming the field through the formation of robust partnerships.
Jerry Hajjar, chair and professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has received a new NSF grant to further his research in the area of sustainable building design — which he envisions as an industry of the future.
Northeastern University engineering students have redesigned a garden in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood for community members with special needs, complete with raised tables and planting beds. Students in the Northeastern chapter […]
Professor Jerome Hajjar, chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, assesses yesterday’s earthquake and how buildings in older cities, such as Boston, are equipped to resist such events.
Civil engineering students whose canoe design literally fell apart last year use their hard-won wisdom to score well in regional competition.
On Friday, a massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan’s northeast coast, causing widespread destruction and thousands of deaths. It was one of the world’s largest quakes of the last century. Jerome Hajjar, chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, studies earthquakes as a structural engineer. Here, he assesses the impact of this quake and the field of earthquake engineering.
