Get to know me in three minutes

Thanks to my dearest and nicest colleague Andreas Kelling to make this professional video for me. I like it so much! Thanks million times :) )) Meanwhile, an article described our project is published on BAM's home webpage. You can read through Research trainees on the trail of concrete fatigue . Thanks a lot to my lovely colleague Rebekka Gabler for the interview and the article:D

Hope all you have fun watching the video as well as reading the article!


  1. Very nice and professional video Lijia, well done

    1. Thank you Imane, I am so appreciated what my BAM colleagues have done for me, without them, I can't make it!

  2. Dear Lijia Long,

    I'm preparing to apply MSCA ITN 2019, will be open on Sep 2018.
    But i find some difficulties and challenges, i'd be glad if you kindly help me to give some directions and advices.
    I really need help 'coz i have read all the H2020 and MSCA handbook/guidelines

    May i sent you an email?

    Thank u

    1. Hi, Arina, thank you for your message. I will be very happy if I can help you. You can send me an email through :)

    2. Thank you very much.. noted it. I'll send an email to you soon..
      Very excited 😊

    3. Dear Arina, I have problem sending back the email to you, it shows an error. I will reply here, hope you can see it.
      So regards all your questions, I think you misunderstood the role of host of university and projects. For every Marie Curie ITN project, they have its own website, on the website you can find all the information related to the vacancy, host university and research plan etc.

      If you really want to apply for Marie Curie ITN, I would suggest you to start from finding the relevant ITN project within your background, instead of finding the universities. That means, please try , and apply the job that related to you, it doesn’t need to be exactly the same with your major, it can be crossed major. I had background of petroleum engineering but still get admitted to civil engineering position.

      The Marie Curie ITN project is not solely university based, there are several universities, institutes, companies together to apply one project funding from European Union. When they get the funding, each partner will recruit their PhD individually

      I wish you good luck finding your relevant project as well as your dream university or company😊

  3. Hi, This is a wonderfull blog it’s amazing and helpful, i want to see more blog to know more about other things like this because this blog gives me a lot of information, knowledge

Breaking the wall of Value of Monitoring Information

On August 14,2018, the Morandi bridge in Genoa Italy collapsed, which caused 43 people to die and great losses. Here  I am not going to talk about why it  collapsed . But I want to say what we can do to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening. Any structures are like us, if we are sick, we go to doctors. But if structures are sick, how could we know? Yes, through structural health monitoring-SHM! SHM is process of implementing damage detection strategy, which is like a doctor giving us indication of the structure health status. However, the SHM is not like our health insurance which can be free. Some structure owners may be hesitated on investing large money before they see the VALUE. Although it is proved that SHM is beneficial, the existing literature doesn’t tell them: when to do the monitoring? How often to do that? Which SHM techniques to choose? After monitoring, what action to take? There are so many decisions needed to be made, that’s why here comes my rese

Trip to UK combined with work and leisure

This July, I attended my first international conference during my PhD in Manchester, UK, which is The European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring Series (EWSHM) 2018. Here I presented my paper : Long L., Thöns S., Döhler M. The effects of SHM system parameters on the value of damage detection information EWSHM 2018 , The 9th European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring Series, Manchester, UK, 10-13 July 2018 Before the conference, I also attended a 3-day EWSHM workshop "Structural Health Mornitoring Using Statistical Pattern Recognition "by Los Alamos Dynamics,LLC in University of Manchester. Thanks Mr. Charles R. Farrar, Michael Todd and Eric Flynn for opening the door of  Structural health monitoring to me.  My presentation was on the second day of the conference under the special session of :Case studies and theoretical developments in quantifying the value of SHM. On the third day, a tour of Manchester United football stadium and museum at Old Tra
