    Chattanooga Engineers Club

    Joint Meeting with ASME Chattanooga 

    Monday, August 9, 2021

    12:00 noon - 1:00 pm

    Updates from Bryan College's Vogel School of Engineering

    Around Engineers Week 2018, Bryan College announced that The Vogel School of Engineering will open its doors to students in the upcoming fall semester. The school is named for alumnus Brigadier General George B. Vogel who, with his wife Doris, provided a substantial gift for the new school.

    Chattanooga Engineers Club members visited the new school and met some of the freshmen on February 11, 2019.  Since then, faculty members and students have participated in CEC meetings and E Week events.  Chattanooga E Week, ASME Chattanooga and Chattanooga Regional Manufacturing Association presented E Week scholarship to five students this year.

    Dr. Lyle Smith, Dean of Vogel School of Engineering, will provide an overview and updates. Justin Porter, Chair of the Industry Advisory Board, Electrical Engineer/Chief of Staff to CTO at Unum, will share news on the first graduating class.  CEC's own Paul Snyder and Lulu Copeland, serving on the IAB, will provide comments on how the engineering community can support these future engineers.

    Chandler Hinson, current student, will have a short presentation on the VEX Robotics Club launching this fall semester.

    online meeting access information will be provided to registered attendees.

    Chattanooga Engineers Club

    Joint meeting with ASCE and TSPE Chattanooga

    Monday, August 23, 2021

    12:00 noon - 1:00 pm

    A Smart Bridge in Tennessee

    Dr. Dayakar Penumadu, Fred N. Peebles Professor in UT’s Tickle College of Engineering and Characterization Fellow for Materials and Processing 

    On the surface, it may look like any other two-lane bridge you have driven over.  

    But a new high-tech bridge in north central Tennessee is equipped with a fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite material bridge deck embedded with fiber optic sensors.  This might be a solution for many failing bridges.  This new bridge replaced a damaged old concrete crossing which was rated structurally deficient and outdated.  According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, about 8 percent of the more than 617,000 bridges in the US are structurally deficient and need repair.

    For this project, researchers and engineering students in the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Fibers and Composites Manufacturing Facility embedded smart fiber optic sensors developed by Luna Innovations into the bridge surface during production.

    Dr. Dayakar Penumadu,  will talk about integrating new materials and structures. Due to bridge decks being the most damage-prone elements, smart sensors are distributed throughout the composite bridge deck to provide performance data for years to come.

    Dr. Penumadu holds PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology, MS from University of Kentucky and Purdue University, and BS from Birla Institute of Technology and Science in Pilani, India.

    Online access information will be provided to registered participants before the meeting date.
