In recent years, Dr. Alam and his research group have developed several unique lab facilities that are dedicated to the development of smart structures technology, earthquake research, and advanced structural health monitoring system for civil engineering infrastructures. For last few years, his research group has been working on developing smart structural system consisting of smart sensors, actuation devices, health monitoring equipment, data acquisition system, and non-destructive testing equipment which is capable of monitoring the real time condition of a structure and can respond with active control system. Dr. Alamís Structural Health Monitoring lab has added a new dimension in the advanced research of structural engineering. Lab facilities with Earthquake Shake Table, Dynamic Universal Testing Machine, actuators, load frame, etc. have provided the students with the finest opportunity to contribute to the earthquake research society.††
