Virginia Tech Announces Goodwin Hall-Smart Laboratory to Advance Education and Research
IRVINE, CA: The Virginia Tech College of Engineering that offers academic programs in a variety of engineering fields has announced the completion of Goodwin Hall- Smart Infrastructure Laboratory, reports PRWeb.
The laboratory which is the most instrumented building for vibrations in the world, aims at advancing education and research in areas that utilize sensor information in an effort to improve the design, monitoring and daily operation of civil and mechanical infrastructure, as well as investigate how humans interact with the built environment. The facility is very useful for research in the a lot many fields that include structural health monitoring, building dynamics, foot pattern tracking, behavioral science, and smart energy use.
By incorporating the VTI CMX09 PXIe chassis, the EMX-4250 PXIe DSA, and the EMX-2500 PXIe LXI Ethernet controller, Virginia Tech was able to create a 288 channel modular, scalable, DAQ solution distributed throughout the building on multiple floors.
VTI's incorporation of the IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol via Ethernet allowed easy synchronization with no additional time synchronization cabling required. With all channels synchronized, dynamic events can be tracked, analyzed, and phasing can be maintained for modal analysis.
"We see great benefit coming from this building, not just for education but also furthering our research in regards data acquisition and analysis," says Tom Sarfi, VP of Product Management, VTI Instruments Corporation.
