Dr. Tarazaga presents a project update to Mechanical Engineering Department Advisory Board.
On October 11, 2013, VT-SIL will address the Virginia Tech's College of Engineering advisory board on the latest events and progress of the instrumentation of the new Signature Engineering Building!
We are very excited for this opportunity provided by Dean Benson.
A formal walk through of the building today showed that the majority of the mounts have been installed. Next step cabling!
Mr. Tucker continues to scan the building in order to create a 3D model of the building. This will allow for various research activities such as very accurate location and alignment of sensors for comparisons with building models.
The 143 mounts are on their way to being installed. They are strategically distributed through the building in order to serve multiple research purposes.
The mounts have been especially designed to not interfere with the data being taken, meet fire code, and for ease of installation.
More to come!
Mr. Tucker performs initial scan of the 4th floor of the signature engineering building. Below you can see a video of his work.
