Distributed Micro and Nano remote sensing network

Welcome to the Center for Intelligent Health Monitoring of Biomechanical and Aerospace systems in the Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Alberta. Our experimental and computational facilities are located in the sixth floor (the Mechanical Engineering  floor) of the National Institute for Nanotechnology Technology (NINT) Building at the university of Alberta.

The center is home to a highly motivated research group engaged in a series of projects that covers the area of Health Monitoring of Biomechanical and Aerospace systems using micro and Nano Technology remote sensing platforms. The center is composed of the following labs:

  • The Bio MEMS and NEMS Lab
  • The MEMS and NEMS Multiphyics computational Lab
  • The advanced sensor network for Health Monitoring  lab.

Some of the areas our center specializes in includes:

  1. Simulation of Micro Electronic Mechanical Systems (MEMS) using Substructuring. 
  2. Health Monitoring of metallic and composite material using embedded optical fibers (smart patches).
  3. Modeling of widespread Fatigue in aerospace and automotive structures.
  4. Smart materials/shape memory alloys. 
  5. Simulation of the laser welding manufacturing process in aerospace and automotive structures.
  6. Modeling of widespread Fatigue in aerospace and automotive structures.
