2010 Monitoring and Sensing of Near-Collapse Buildings Workshop

The DHS S&T Directorate and IDD sponsored the 2010 Monitoring and Sensing Activities Workshop at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS on April 6-7, 2010.The information gathered from this workshop will be used to support IGD's program to investigate the enhancement of building stabilization after an IED attack.

The objective of the workshop was to investigate monitoring and sensing technology to interpret, analyze, and distribute data, in real- or near-real-time, which are critical in assessing the stability of a building struck by an IED. The availability and transfer of information is vital to stabilizing a structure for rescue efforts.

These proceedings consist of the workshop materials including the agenda, presentations, papers submitted, and presenter and author biographies. Also included are the workshop conclusions and discussion matrices.

More information can be found in the Monitoring and Sensing of Near-Collapse Buildings Workshop Proceedings (PDF, 149 pages - 32 MB).
