Research project title: On-line probabilistic model updating for real-time monitoring and prognostics in Engineering

Project description: Over the years, numerous advanced sampling techniques have been developed for Bayesian model updating and paramter identification. However, such techniques still face numerous short-comings and do not perform as effectively and efficiently under certain conditions. The goal of this PhD project is to explore techniques to address some of these short-comings.

Currently, studies are being done in the context of on-line Bayesian model updating for real-time Structural Health Monitoring, as well as Prognostics Health Management for the predictive maintenance of critical structures and components within Nuclear power plants.
