Active Materials and Intelligent Structures (AMIS) Laboratory



The Active Materials and Intelligent Structures (AMIS) Lab focuses on developing advanced sensing technology for structural health monitoring (SHM) and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of aerospace, mechanical, and civil structures. We conduct research on various cutting-edge technology, covering piezoelectric wafer active sensors, scanning laser Doppler Vibrometry, tunable metamaterials, and patrolling structural neurons. The strength of AMIS Lab resides in the fundamentals of vibration and wave mechanics, the analysis of complex structural systems via analytical and numerical simulations, as well as sensing data fusion and processing methods. We strive to provide the state-of-the-art solution for structural sensing, monitoring, and life prediction of engineering infrastructures.
