The project "Innovative Structural Health Monitoring In Civil Engineering Infrastructure Sustainability" – TULCOEMPA is implemented at the Civil Engineering, Architecture and Environmental Engineering Faculty of Lodz University of Technology from 01/10/2011.
TULCOEMPA is a multidisciplinary project (2011-2015) which combines two fields - construction and monitoring of buildings. The project covers two main activities:
• pioneer nationwide usage of the innovative strengthening system of the bridge using unanchored prestressed carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates.
• long-term monitoring of the object (Structural Health Monitoring)
The project is part of the Polish-Swiss Research Programme.
EMPA - Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology is a Swiss Partner of the project.
The project is implemented under the management and leadership of Dr. Renata Kotynia
ICT team is headed by Prof. Andrzej Napieralski from the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science
The work of the Swiss partner is headed by Dr. Glauco Feltrin
The value of the project is 4 592 914,00 PLN
The project lasts 43 months - 01.10.2011 - 30.04.2015
