    Harris Research Group

    Our research within the Infrastructure Simulation, Sensing and Evaluation Laboratory focuses on the performance characterization of the built environment.

Infrastructure Simulation, Sensing and Evaluation Laboratory

The research within the Infrastructure Simulation, Sensing and Evaluation Lab (I-S2EE) group is interdisciplinary in nature and crosses the boundaries of civil engineering and systems engineering, but has maintained a  focus on characterizing the performance and condition state of the built environment using a variety of techniques. I-S2EE research has explored the domains of transportation infrastructure, smart and connected communities, cyber-physical systems, crowd-sourcing, and smart/high-performance materials.

Meet our team

Within I-S2EE our core research leverages the structural engineering laboratory, which is a large-scale physical laboratory housed within the Department of Engineering Systems and Environment. The laboratory is equipped with a variety of testing equipment suited for small component testing, as well as field deployable systems for rapid load testing, monitoring, and non-destructive evaluation of civil infrastructure. In addition to our experimental capabilities, our work is also aligned with the Omni-Reality & Cognition Lab, a facility dedicated to the education and research of human interaction with infrastructure systems and environments, utilizing alternative (virtual, mixed, and augmented) reality technologies.
