Newly funded project combining bridge structural health monitoring and tidal energy (Aug 7, 2014)

A team of UNH researchers (including Prof. Fu) is starting a new project on the Memorial Bridge at Portsmouth, NH. The Living Bridge project will create a self-diagnosing, self-reporting “smart bridge” powered by a local renewable energy source, tidal energy, by transforming the landmark bridge–a vertical lift bridge over the tidal Piscataqua River, with pedestrian access […]


New Research Award (Jan 14, 2014)

Prof. Fu just received a new research award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This is an interdisciplinary collaboration with Prof. Nicholas Kirsch from UNH’s Electrical Engineering. The objective of this project is to detect and estimate the number of occupants in buildings to control building energy-consuming systems and thereby increase energy efficiency. Conventional occupancy sensors detect […]
