A ship in a storm is a lot like a paperclip that you've bent back and forth too many times: repeated strain can cause catastrophic failure. So NAME researchers have designed a simple mechanical sensor that can precisely measure that strain, predicting structural failures before they occur and helping to keep military and commercial sailors safe.


Mark Groden is a Graduate Student Research Assistant at NAME under the guidance of Prof. Matthew Collette. He graduated in 2012 magna cum laude with a BS in NAME and the College's Distinguished Undergraduate Academic Achievement Award. His PhD is focused on structural reliability and application of Bayesian Networks.
