Vijaya Holla, CompEng Student since winter semester 2018/19 and currently working as a student assistant at the Institute for Structural Mechanics at RUB, recently published a peer-reviewed journal paper. The paper “Computational Generation of Virtual Concrete Mesostructures“ is published as part of the DFG-funded project CoDA in collaboration with M.Sc. Giao Vu (RUB), Dr.-Ing. Jithender J. Timothy (RUB), M.Sc. Fabian Diewald (TUM), Prof. Dr. Christoph Gehlen (TUM), Prof. Dr. techn. Günther Meschke (RUB).

The aim of the 6-year research project "Concrete Damage Assessment by Coda Waves" (CoDA) is to develop new methods for assessing the safety and durability of pre-stressed concrete structures such as existing bridges with the help of coda wave analysis. The content of the project is the theoretical and experimental investigation of diffuse ultrasonic signals - the coda - in reinforced concrete structures.
