Design and Monitoring of Large-Scale Infrastructures

The growing world population, the ongoing urbanization, the ever-increasing size, height and complexity of large scale built infrastructure lead to higher risks with respect to natural and manmade threats. Therefore, smart designs and monitoring of large infrastructures are required. Within this context, the lecture provides insights in the basic requirements for a safe, secure and resilient design of construction and monitoring of those large urban infrastructures.

In this lecture, Prof. Stolz will give you an overview about the fundamentals and tools, which enable architects, structural engineers and building installation engineers assess the safety, security and resilience of designs. Furthermore, Prof. Reiterer will introduce you to measurement techniques for monitoring such structures. This includes a deep view on the corresponding sensor and measurement concepts and how real time data streams are used for monitoring the resilience of infrastructure.

Laser Scanning for Mapping Large Structures

Large-scale structures like roads, rai-ways, buildings or hillsides are sensitive parts of our infrastructure. They have to be monitored to ensure their safety. For the monitoring of large-scale structures laser scanner are a very reliable and powerful instrument.

In this lecture, you will get an overview about the components of laser scanners and its functionality as well as the data processing. The focus in this lecture is on mobile mapping using laser scanners mounted on different platforms like cars, trains or drones.

In the exercise, you are going to design your own measuring system for special tasks. A lab tour at Fraunhofer IPM is part of the exercise.
