Dr. Kenneth Loh explained his research which characterizes the performance of a sensor prototype for monitoring bridge scour, which is the erosion of soil/riverbed materials by flowing water near bridge foundations that could cause collapse.
Dr. Loh is an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering, Nano-Engineering and Smart Structures Technologies (NESST) Laboratory, University of California, Davis, and he received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from University of Michigan. He is conducting his Fulbright research in bridge scour monitoring at National Taiwan University. His research interests include multifunctional materials, and resilient structures.
