Let's add some fun for presenting scientific work!


In this post I would like to share some examples on how to present scientific work in a more interesting way based on my experience.

Since my project is about quantification of the value of structural health monitoring before its implementation, the goal is to help decision maker to save money and make better decision. So that I came up with idea of making an advertisement: Let your investment be worthy. I made this presentation to the people from industry during the 3rd Implementation day in COWI and everyone was amused when they saw this slide. I got very positive feedback afterwards.  



During the process of investigating my research project, I gradually found that I was performing a role like a consultant to solve questions from the client who has problem making decisions.  I came up with the idea : why not presenting this interaction like chatting on WhatsApp or Messenger?  So that I made this  Messenger poster to present my research questions and results. In this way, it gives a more direct impression to let people know what I have done. 



Besides, to help those who have non technical background at all to understand what is structural health monitoring and integrity management, inspired by the idea of  my other colleagues,  I made drawings of cartoon poster to show the similarities and differences between teeth care and bridge management. 


Those are the three examples that I want to share, hope it can help you and inspire you to add some fun to your next presentation !

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!





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! SHMis 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 research, which can help t…

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 informationEWSHM 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 Trafford followed…
